Rabia is a 37-year-old married woman living in Baalbeck with her husband and four children. Rabia has been the owner of a baby clothes shop since 2003. This shop was a challenge for her because, like many men in this region, her husband was refusing the idea of letting his wife start a business of her own. Rabia is requesting a loan from Al Majmoua in order to increase her baby collection for the holiday season. Rabia is proud of what she has achieved and willing to expand her business and prove herself even more to her husband and relatives.
