A loan of $1,000 helped to decorate her bakery.


Amcha's story

Amcha is a 38-year-old married woman and a mother of four children for whom she works hard to provide a good living. Amcha is a baker who makes saj bread, a traditional Lebanese bread cooked on a saj, much like an upside-down wok. It is also known as markouk, manakish or manaeesh bread. The dough, which is like a thin pastry, is topped with thyme, cheese or ground meat; some places use other ingredients to make it tasty and attractive.


Amcha used to work with her sister as partners, but her sister was getting too old for such hard work. Consequently, Amcha bought out her sister's part of the bakery and is now the sole owner.


Amcha's business increases during Ramadan. Once the daytime fast has been broken, most store owners open their shops for customers at night. People will eat at nighttime so they can fast during the day.


Amcha is an Al Majmoua client in good standing and has a good reputation. Her previous loans helped a lot in improving her social and financial situations. Amcha is now requesting a loan, her third from Al Majmoua, in order to decorate her bakery so as to attract customers. She hopes to maintain their loyalty.
