Angham is a 45-year-old married woman and a mother of five children. She has been working in her convenience store since four years ago. She is a hard worker who puts so much effort into supporting her husband, who works painting houses, in covering their family's expenses and providing their children the good standards of living.

Angham is a multitasking person; in addition to her store, she also sells used clothes and shoes to increase her income and develop her family's social and financial living.

Today, Angham is applying for a loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua in order to buy a car that will help her a lot in her business, especially for visiting wholesale trade markets and buying requested items for her shop. She will also use it for the clothes and shoes business to expand customers and the market for her business, which will expand her working zone and might encourage her to open another branch. Through the requested car, Angham might target rural areas with her products, which will surely increase her income.

She hopes to be capable of developing the used clothes business more, and she is working hard to start a wholesale trade in the future.
