Lama is a 26-year-old wife and mother of two who is very self-reliant in providing her children with a decent upbringing. For the past 8 years she has been selling an array of foodstuffs and domestic cleaning supplies to her neighbors and fellow townsmen at very reasonable prices. Lama is a very serious worker, although her inventory is somewhat low and her competition is fierce. Accordingly, she was interested in obtaining a loan from Al Majmoua to purchase foodstuffs for her store.
