Zora Group's story

Kawthar is the featured borrower for Zora's group. She got together with her other group members to take this Al Majmoua loan because they have always been neighbors and friends. She is the one on the left. Kawthar is a 33-year-old married woman, and a mother of two children (Mariam, Female, 8 years; and Ali, Male, 7 years old). Kawthar has worked in selling clothes for 3 years and works hard on improving her business as much as she can, to provide her children with the best lives. This is Kawthar's second cycle as an Al Majmoua borrower. Her previous loan helped a lot in improving her business and reflected positively on both her social and financial situations. Kawthar requested a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua to increase her business capital with the newly released collection. Mona is a 47-year-old married woman and mother of three children (Fatima, female, 20; Ali, male, 18; and Zeinab, 15 years old female). She wants to start a new business, in order to help her husband in increasing their income and covering their childrens' expenses. Lina is a 29-year-old widow and a mother of two boys (Hachem, 9, and Mohamad, 7), whom she sacrifices her whole life just to please them by providing the best things any child would request. Lina opened a toy selling shop 6 years ago after her husband passed away, to make her living and manage her family's financial situation. She hopes to keep on providing them with the necessary needs, and to see them become important people in the future.
