Sahar, 31 years old, lives with her husband Ali and their three school-attending children. Although Sahar should be taking care of her children, she is obliged to work continually as she is responsible for supporting her husband, who has been working as a photographer out of the country, with their family expenses.

Sahar opened her own clothing shop in 2010, providing her customers with good quality products at fair prices. She is satisfied with what she has attained so far, even though she wishes to enhance her family’s way of living as much as possible. Thus Sahar is requesting a loan from Kiva Partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase a new collection of clothes that will increase her earnings.

Her husband and children trust her, knowing that she is a brave woman who can handle problems however complicated they may be.
