Al Bader Group's story

Layla is the featured borrower for Al Bader's group. She got together with her other group members to take this Al Majmoua loan because they have always been neighbors and friends.

Layla makes and sells Saj Bread, a special traditional Lebanese bread highly requested in her area. She also makes crochet (a handicraft in which yarn is looped into a patterned fabric with a hooked needle).

Layla is a hardworking woman who seeks perfection in her business to keep her customers satisfied. She helps her husband in making a living and covering their five children's expenses.

Her good reputation helped a lot in improving and expanding her business more and more.

Layla is applying for a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua in order to buy a new improved dough-making machine, necessary to ease her business.

Layla is working hard on expanding her business, and she believes that although she is 49 years old, she can still expand her business and increase her capital.
