A loan of $1,000 helped to increase her business merchandise to increase her production.

Fatima's story

Fatima is a 55-year-old married woman and mother of one child. She works in preparing and selling traditional Saj bread and Manakish (similar to pita bread, it can be topped with special ingredients such as thyme, cheese and many others, just like pizza toppings, but it must be folded and it's usually eaten at breakfast) for the past 20 years. This is a very important source of living for her family.

Her business is good enough to cover her family's expenses and nothing more, so that's why Fatima applied for a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua in order to increase her merchandise to increase her business production, which will lead to an increase in her family's income and will improve their social and financial situations at the same time.

Fatima's customers are neighbors, villagers and relatives. She hopes to expand her business more and more and will try her best to finish building her house which she might use part of this loan to make necessary maintenance requested.
