Rana is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband and daughter appear in her Kiva profile photo instead.

Rana is 31 years old and married with four kids, two of whom are in school.
She has been tailoring t-shirts and trousers for two years.
Rana asked Ryada for funds in order to buy sewing machines and to start her own tailoring shop.
Her future ambition is to have her own clothing shop for sewing t-shirts and trousers and to develop a better life and provide education for her children.
Ryada's Startup Loan is exclusively for borrowers who are beginning new enterprises, not for existing projects. To qualify, a borrower must show a clear business plan and realistic potential for success. The borrower must also invest their own money and resources into at least 50 per cent of the start-up enterprise. Ryada believes strongly in the potential of these borrowers and grants them a three month grace period to help them get their business off the ground.
