Fatima is a 47 year old single woman who owns a grocery shop. She does not have a husband or a son to take care of her, and she did not want others to pity her, so she started this business 4 years ago as a good source of living.

Fatima has been an Al Majmoua borrower for two cycles. Her previous loan was very impressive. It reflected positively on her business development and on the product diversity in her store. She is requesting a new loan to fulfill her customers' needs and meet their requests. She wants to keep her shop filled with every thing they need, all the time, to keep them loyal to her and to emphasize the continuity of shopping at her shop. Fatima will work hard on expanding her business, and hopes to start wholesale trade in the future.
