A loan of $1,500 helped to buy seasonal fruits and vegetables and coal to sell in her store.


Salma's story

Salma is 44 years old and works selling fruits and vegetables. She has three years of experience in this line of work. She likes her work and stands out in her field since she is the only woman working in it in her area. She is married and has two children. She would like to secure a good future and a respectable life for her children. With a loan from al-Majmoua, she would like to buy new goods for her store including seasonal fruits and vegetables, as well as support the side of her business in which she sells coal. She has a great love for her work because it enables her to rely on herself and provide a good education for her children. This is all the more important since she is the one who financially supports her family. She is diligent in her work, and she is known among her neighbors and her customers for her attention to detail and for her low prices which everyone can pay.
