Hanan is a 32-year-old married woman and is the mother of two children. She has been selling bags since 2010. She used to sell perfumes from her house, but she insisted on improving her living. She changed her type and place of business to a more profitable one, and now she is selling her products at her friend's shop to create a strong base to move forward.

Today, Hanan is applying for a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua to increase the variety of products she has for the coming holiday seasons with a special collection of handbags.

This is Hanan's seventh cycle as an Al Majmoua borrower, with a good repayment history. Hanan is planning to expand her business in the future by opening her own shop and improving her living.
