A loan of $1,000 helped to increase her store’s inventory with dates, special Ramadan syrups, and nuts.


Najah's story

Najah is a 55-year-old widow. She opened her grocery store 11 years ago to ensure her livelihood, and she doesn't ask for help from others. As a widow with no one to take care of her, Najah put a premium on improving her social and financial situation by increasing her store’s inventory so she could increase her income and cover most of her expenses.

Najah is well-liked by most of her neighbors, who really encourage her to improve her situation. Like most grocery-store owners, Najah is requesting a loan from Al Majmoua, a Kiva partner, before the holy month of Ramadan so she can increase her stock of goods with dates, special Ramadan syrups, and nuts. This is her third loan.

Najah is a borrower in good standing, and her previous loans have had a great impact on her business and social situation. Najah hopes to stay healthy so she can improve her business and keep on meeting her needs.
