Salwa is a 36-year-old single woman who has been working since 2006 in a convenience store, which she has developed over time. She has started a small snack stand as a part of the store, which she loves a lot and is working hard to improve. Thus today she is applying for a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua in order to make small changes to her shop. She will put in a new aluminum and glass door frame, a table for the snacks, and she will increase her stock of merchandise.

Salwa is trusted and supported by all of her customers, and she loves to serve them as well as she can. Her shop is located in a Palestinian camp, and she is very happy that she serves her customers in a very pleasant way.
