Rabab is a 33-year-old single woman. She has owned her grocery shop for 15 years now, selling a variety of products ranging from vegetables, sweets, and drinks to even detergents. Her customers are the people of her village who trust the quality of her goods and favor her pleasant and friendly attitude.

Rabab is applying for a loan from Kiva’s partner, Al Majmoua with which she will purchase additional goods to sell at her store. This will allow her to expand her business and consequently generate more income for herself. With the money left from the loan, Rabab will assist her brother by supporting his business.
