A loan of $2,000 helped to increase her business capital with special Christmas gifts and gadgets.


Lina's story

Lina is a 47-year-old married woman and mother of four children. She has been working selling gifts, accessories and perfumes since 1975. Lina is a hard worker who developed her business gradually over the years. Her customers are loyal to her, and insist on supporting her through their loyalty. Her son and husband help her by taking turns staying at the shop so she can go home early to take care of her other family members, through preparing food and reviewing her children's lessons if requested.

Lina is applying for a loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua, in order to increase her business capital with special Christmas gifts and gadgets. This is Lina's second cycle as Al Majmoua borrower; her previous loan helped a lot in increasing her business capital and improving her living situation. She hopes to keep responding to customers' needs and developing her business.
