A loan of $1,400 helped to purchase a new collection of clothes and enlarge her business.


Fatima's story

Fatima is a 24-year-old, married woman. She lives with her husband, Sleiman, and their only child. Despite her older age, Fatima is obliged to work continually, as she is responsible for supporting her husband with their family expenses. Their child is attending school.

Fatima started to sell clothes from her home, to avoid the rent expenses. She provides her customers good quality products, at fair prices. She is satisfied with what she has attained so far, although she wishes to enhance her family’s way of living even more. That’s the reason why she’s asking today for a youth loan from Kiva's partner, Vitas s.a.l, which she will use to purchase a new collection of clothes and enlarge her business.

In the near future, Fatima wishes to open her own clothing shop, and maybe hire new employees to help her accomplish the work tasks, and therefore earn higher income.
