Fatima's story

Fatima is a 64-year-old widow. She has owned a grocery store since 2004 where she sells basic home consumption goods, like basic grains, snacks, soft drinks, and frozen items.

Fatima is a very hard-working, responsible woman. She started the business with her own little money after her husband passed away, aiming at improving her household income, which has, in fact, been improving, especially after the two previous loans she had from Kiva's partner, Al Majmoua Lebanese Association for Development, that were invested in developing her business.

Fatima is applying for a loan from Al Majmoua Lebanese Association for Development to invest in working capital and to stock her grocery store to meet customer demand because it’s been growing and she wants to offer her customers a variety of products, especially spring and summer beverages.

Fatima hopes to keep on expanding her business and responding to customers' requests.
