Tamam is a 55-year-old mother of one child. She used to manage her business inside her house since 2006, but 15 days ago Tamam moved to a nearby shop where she opened her own grocery store. She is working hard on improving it and supporting her financial life properly.

Tamam has a special relationship with her customers and works hard to keep it and improve it more and more. She is applying for her sixth loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua in order to start a new business to increase and improve her income to make sure that she will have a stable financial situation especially that she is aging with no one to support her financially.

She will start selling clothes and she hopes that the styles she is going to sell will attract customer's attention. She is a good standing borrower with an excellent history of paying back her loans. Her previous loans helped her a lot in increasing her business capital. Tamam hopes to expand her business to a mini market.
