"My name is Houwaida. I've been a borrower with Al Majmoua for 4 years, and each year is an improvement is over the last. I've been in this business for 15 years, and it is going well, thank God. I have six children. Through the success of my business, I've been able to help my oldest son become an architect. I would like to use this loan to strengthen my business. This is the time for me to stock my inventory with winter clothes."

Houweida's successful store is as busy as it is colorful. She used to import these goods cheaply from Syria, but the fighting there has caused her to import from Beirut, instead. Prices are now more expensive than they used to be. This loan allows her to purchase winter clothing inventory for the coming season.
