Mounira's story

Mounira is a 47-year-old married woman and a mother of two children. She has 9 years of experience in dressmaking and handcrafting, providing orders for wedding and birth ceremonies in her village. Mounira works from home. With the money she makes, she assists her husband with their household expenses.

Mounira is applying for a loan from Kiva’s partner, Al Majmoua, to add to the supplies she has and buy a new sewing machine. With the money left, she will assist her son in buying a computer for his store. Mounira’s plan for the future is to sustain her business enough to develop it into a workshop.
