Rania is a hardworking woman. She started her business seven years ago to help her husband in improving their social and financial situations. Rania is requesting a loan from Kiva-partner Al Majmoua in order to increase her merchandise with the new season's collections, especially for the Adha Eid “Muslim Holy Pilgrim.”
Most of her customers are family members, friends, neighbors and relatives; they highly support her in order to provide a good living for her children. Rania’s special reputation earned her customers’ support and trust. She insists on improving her business as much as she can in order to expand it through opening a shop instead of working from her own house.
