A loan of $1,500 helped to increase her merchandise with a specially released spring and summer collection.


Fatima's story

Fatima is a 28-year-old married woman, mother of three children. She has been working at selling used clothes since 2010, to help her husband in making their living and providing their children with the best education they can have.

Fatima's business is going on just fine, and she puts much effort into developing it and expanding her working sectors. The diversity in her clothes attracts customers' attention, and that's why she is applying for a YOUTH LOAN from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua for her second loan cycle, in order to increase her merchandise with a specially released spring and summer collection.

Fatima has a very good reputation in her area, and she is very thankful for that because it is a positive point to help her improve her business and increase her income. She hopes to keep on expanding her business as much as she can in order to keep on pleasing her customers.
