Saada is a 52-year-old married woman with no children who spends her time tailoring to communicate with others.

Saada is a hard-working woman, who is liked by almost all of her customers that come to her shop in order to enjoy communicating with her.

Saada is applying for a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua, in order to buy necessary tailoring tools and do necessary maintenance on her house. She believes that her work has helped her a lot in filling her free time, and encouraging her to have new friends most of the time.

Saada is happy with what she has accomplished till now. She was capable of building a small house in her village and is working hard to finish it as soon as possible to spend what's left for her (as she says) in her life in her village.
