Almaza's story

Almaza is a 52-year-old widow and mother of three children. She has been baking traditional Lebanese Saj bread and Manakish for the past nineteen years in order to provide her orphans a good and healthy living. Almaza is a hard worker who has sacrificed her whole life for the sake of raising her children and supporting them.

Almaza is applying for a loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua in order to start a new business. She will open a mobile shop and she will make sure to stock prepaid cards because they are highly requested in the market.

This is her second cycle as an Al Majmoua borrower. She invested her previous loan in increasing her present business capital, and it had a positive impact. She hopes that this new loan will help fulfill her family's needs and satisfy their desires.
