Manal is a 34-year-old single woman who has been employed as a hair stylist for the past seven years. Her family is very supportive of her goals, but she faces stiff competition and doesn’t have a lot of funds to draw on. Although Manal already enjoys patronage from her neighbors and other community members, she is very driven and is eager to learn about all the latest practices which can help push her work to the next level. Hence, Manal would like to ask Al Majmoua for a loan to buy new equipment, shampoo, and facial creams for her beauty salon.
