Hanan is a 42-year-old divorced woman and mother of five children. She owns a convenience store since 2003. She used run it to help her ex-husband in their living. Since that time, she now works on improving it to cover her family's expenses.

Hanan is well-known in the region. With her good reputation and hard work, she performs to help her children. She applied for a loan for the first time from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua in order to buy preserved foods, beverages, detergents and sweets to open a new branch, which will for sure improve her living. Her son helps her a lot in her shop. He asks her most of the time to go home and rest as he fills in her place.

Most of Hanan's customers are neighbors, relatives, friends and some people passing by. She hopes to keep on expanding her business in a wider region to keep her children in a good heritage.
