Kolthoum, a 46-year-old married mother of three, has been working in agriculture since 1989. Two years ago she started her own business to help her husband increase their family income to ensure their children will have their needs met. A hard worker who grows fruits and vegetables, Kolthoum is very happy with her production and business.

Kolthoum is requesting her second loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua to prepare for the planting season with necessary seeds and fertilizers. Her previous loan helped increase her production, and she is sure that this new one will have the same effect. She puts a great deal of effort into expanding and increasing her production as much as possible.
