Sanaa is a 43-year-old, married woman. She lives with her husband and three children. Two of the children are still attending school and the other is working. She started selling clothes from her home in 1995. She’s now working with her husband to earn higher revenues and cover their children’s educational fees. Her husband has owned a coffee shop for the past 16 years. Today, she wants to borrow $1,000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase additional quantities of clothes, such as coats, scarves and pants. She notes that this Kiva loan will improve her business and thus allow her to gain more customers. In the future, she plans to open her own clothing shop.
