Lina's story

Lina is a 49-year-old married woman and the mother of one child. In 1996, she opened her own grocery store to help her husband in making their living. Lina is a hard worker with a very good reputation. Her aim is to help her husband in making their living, although at the beginning he was against the idea, because he didn't want his wife to tire herself in business life and wants her to stay relaxed and take good care of their child. But, at the end he accepted the fact that she has to spend her spare time in something useful that is productive at the same time.

Today, Lina is applying for a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua, and this is her ninth cycle as Al Majmoua borrower. She wants to buy new merchandise for her business, in order to increase the variety of products she sells. Lina is always responsive to her customers requests to keep them loyal and pleased. She hopes to turn her shop to a Super Market, and she is willing to open a bakery in the future.
