Nahida is a 31-year-old woman who lives in the Bekaa with her husband and their two children. She has owned a shop since 2007. She sells toys for children, dishes, home cleaning products, groceries and many other things. When she first started her business, she wasn’t able to offer a large quantity of merchandise, therefore she decided to have various kinds of merchandise and offer all she could to her clients. Her clients are her friends, neighbors and tourists.

She decided to open her shop because she always wanted to have work of her own and to be self-reliant. She requested a loan from Al Majmoua in order to purchase new merchandise for her store. This is the first time she has requested a loan. She plans to keep on improving her store to attract more clients and to expand it by making it a grocery store.
