Chaeban Group's story

Majida, Fatima & Yousra are three neighbors, in fact, three best childhood friends who lived & grew up together in Nabatieh.

Majida is a 41-year-old married woman with three children. Four years ago she opened an ice cream & juice shop to help her husband with their living expenses. Today she is requesting a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua in order to buy new extra tables and chairs to increase the number of expected customers, as she is expanding the place so that it can fit more customers, in the coming spring season. This is her third cycle as an Al Majmoua borrower, with a good paying-back history.

Fatima is a 44-year-old married woman, mother of four children, who works in agriculture, specialized in planting and harvesting tobacco for 18 years. She started this business in order to prove herself in the community and it was easy for her to take this step since her husband has his own land. It's only the early wake-up call in the morning that makes her feel tired, but the result at the end of each harvesting season makes her proud of herself. Fatima has also been an Al Majmoua borrower for three cycles, and all her previous loans were invested into her business with impressive results. This time Fatima is requesting a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua, in order to buy necessary chemicals, plastic bags and nutrients for her agricultural business.

Yousra is a 44-year-old married woman, mother of two children. She has worked selling cosmetics and beauty creams for six years. Yousra started her business in order to hep her husband with their living expenses and to prove herself in the area she is living. She is a very sociable person with very good customer service. Her business needs her to be a very convincing person, and in fact she is.

Yousra is Al Majmoua borrower, and her previous loans were invested in improving her business. Today, Yousra is requesting a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua, in order to buy a new spring & summer collection, highly requested by her customers.
