Fatima is a 55-year-old married woman, mother of three children. Thirty-nine years ago, Fatima started working as a tailor. This long experience gave her customers trust and made them supportive. Most of Fatima's customers are neighbors, relatives and friends.

Fatima is a hard-working woman who sacrifices her life for the sake of her children. Fatima has been an Al Majmoua borrower for eight cycles, and almost all of her loans were used to pay for treatment for her child's illness. And still she would do anything in order to continue his treatment. She is a borrower in good standing.

Fatima is applying for a loan this time in order to improve her business, through buying a new, updated tailoring machine necessary for her business. This machine will help a lot in increasing her income, at the same time covering her son's medical expenses. She hopes to stay healthy and capable of covering almost all of her family's needs.
