Sawsan Group's story

Sawsan is a 41-year-old widow and mother of four children. She is the family's sole breadwinner, taking the full responsibility after her husband passed away. Sawsan opened a convenience store at the same building she is living in, to stay next to her children and to manage her business in a balanced way. Sawsan sells conserves, sweets and detergents. She is working hard on improving her business so that she stays capable of providing a good living to her children. Sawsan is the featured borrower for Sawsan's group and she is elected as the group leader. She got together with her other group members to take this Al Majmoua loan because they have always been neighbors and friends. She is seated on the right with the pink veil. Fatima is the one in the middle. She is a 23-year-old married woman, and mother of three children. She works as a hairdresser from her house to help her husband in their living and to take good care of her family at the same time. Samira is a 48-year-old married woman and mother of one child. She has worked making hand-made souvenirs for twelve years and is proud of herself. This is their third cycle as Al Majmoua borrowers, and they all agree that Al Majmoua loans helped a lot in improving their social and financial situations.
