A loan of $2,000 helped to buy a special tailoring machine, a sewing stand and necessary sewing tools.


Marie's story

Marie is a 50-year-old married woman with two children. Marie has worked as a tailor for 20 years and in 2009 she started her own business. Marie intended to do so because she was working hard to be independent and to provide a more comfortable life for her family.

Her sewing machines aren't modern and updated, but through a loan she's requesting from Kiva's partner, Al Majmoua, Marie will be capable of buying a special sewing machine in addition to a tailoring stand and necessary tailoring tools. These will definitely help in improving her quality and quantity of work.

Marie has been an Al Majmoua borrower for four consecutive cycles, and all of them reflected positively on her social and financial situation. She is also a good borrower that Al Majmoua is proud to deal with. Marie hopes to open her own atelier as soon as possible.
