Saadah, a 44-year-old divorced woman from Bint Jbeil, has been working as a tailor and a beauty artist since 2003. Most of her clients are her relatives, friends and neighbors. She lives with her elderly mother and takes good care of her, saying that a mother is a blessing everyone must cherish.

Saadah is requesting her fourth loan from Al Majmoua in order to improve her business and to pay back money she borrowed from friends to pay for her mother's medication. Her previous loans have helped her a great deal, given she has no one else to help her in improving her business, economic, or social life.

All that Saadah hopes for is to have some rest after having confronted many problems that arose after her divorce and her mother's sickness.
