A loan of $1,850 helped to open a small store.


Asmaa's story

Because Asmaa is a conservative person, she asked her son Khaled to appear in the photo instead. Asmaa is a 48-year-old housewife married to Mr. Mahfooz, a taxi driver, and she has one daughter.
Wanting a better life for herself and her family, Asmaa contributes to paying the household expenses through selling different products, from home tools to antiques and so on. She sells to all her friends and neighbors and has obtained a good reputation in her community. Now she would like a loan to buy more products and increase her sales in the hope of obtaining enough money to open a small store instead of selling products in her home. This will lead to an increase in sales and an expansion of her customer base, therefore improving her family’s lifestyle.
