Iman is a 45-year-old married woman, mother of two children. She has been working at making handmade souvenirs and accessories as her own business since 1996, with 17 years of experience in this field.

Iman is a hard worker; she replies quickly to her customers' needs, with a remarkable quality of products produced. Iman has been an Al Majmoua borrower for three cycles, with a good standing and paying-back history.

Her previous loans were invested in improving her business capital through increasing her handmade product needs. Today she is using the requested loan for the same purpose, but she will also invest it in buying special accessories and a 'foulard' collection. She hopes to move her business out of her house and open a special souvenir shop in the future.
