Due to cultural reasons, Ruqaya prefers that her photo not be on the Internet; thus, the above photo is of her husband. Ruqaya is a 23-year-old married woman who supports three family members from Jabal Al-Hussain, Amman, Jordan.

Ruqaya is requesting a loan of 500 JOD to buy clothes to resell. She has been selling her products in the area with a group of the women, but now she wants to sell clothes on her own. She hopes in the future to expand her business by opening a shop with her husband. As a result, she hopes to be able to improve her living standard and to continue supporting her sons' education.

Since Ruqaya is under 30 years old her loan is considered a youth loan.
