Fatima's story

Fatima is a 45-year-old married woman and mother of five children. She has worked as a tailor for 22 years. Fatima rents and tailors women's dresses and her business is expanding upon customer's requests.

Fatima is a hard worker who puts so much effort into improving her business, which is affected by the lack of electricity, and that's why she applied for a loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua in order to buy a power generator and a new updated sewing machine.

Both items will increase her business and improve her income. Most of Fatima's customers are neighbors, friends, and relatives. Fatima is planning to develop her business into a big clothing factory.
