Mounira is a 29-year-old single woman who is working hard to prove herself to her friends and relatives. She is an industrious woman who improves her business as much as she can by adding new products attractive to new customers.

Her nine years of experience in the field of mixing and creating special perfume blends has earned her the trust of her customers and given her encouragement to continue mixing new scents in the future. In response to her customers' needs and requests, Mounira will put a great deal of effort into improving and expanding her perfume-making sector.

Mounira has also started selling hookah, which is a highly requested item these days and brings a good income.

This is Mounira's second cycle as an Al Majmoua borrower. Her previous loan helped a great deal to improve her hookah business; at this time, she is requesting a loan from this Kiva partner in order to buy new perfume collections, in addition to special bottles. She also hopes to open a private perfume atelier, where she can make her special blends and expand her market.
