Fattouma is a 55-year-old Lebanese single woman. She lives with her three siblings. They are all joining forces and working really hard to cover the heavy living expenses.

Today, she’s looking for a loan of $1,200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase the required quantities of groceries including sugar, soft drinks, cigarettes and many other items. She notes that this Kiva loan will increase her sales thus her profits. In the future, she plans to open her own supermarket.
