A loan of $2,000 helped to start a new business and increase her grocery store's merchandise.

Alia's story

Alia is a 48-year-old single woman, owner of a grocery store since 2002. She used to sell women clothes but she turned to a more profitable income business.

Alia's store is located in a dense region which requires a lot of care and always keeps it full with everything her customers need. Her products are of a high quality, and her prices are affordable. Because of this she has highly loyal customers.

Alia is applying for a loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua, in order to start a new business and increase her store's merchandise based on her customers' needs.

She will open an internet cafe, that will attract almost all of the region's kids and teenagers, and will help her to increase her income, improve her quality of living and help her save for her elderly living.

She aims to expand her business from a small grocery store into a wide supermarket.
