A loan of $2,100 helped a member to buy the present season's production and prepare for the other seasons where the foods are not available.

Eyad Baysour Group's story

Amal is the featured borrower of Eyad Baysour's group. She joined with the other group members to apply for a loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua because they have always been neighbors and friends.

Amal is a 41-year-old widow who has been working in food production. She specializes in the mouneh business, which aims at a food preservation strategy, allowing foods from one season to be eaten another time during which they are not typically available. She started five years ago to provide her family with the necessary living needs since her husband passed away. She is taking the role of the loving mother and the hardworking father at the same time.

The loan for which she applied will help her to increase her production, through buying the present season's production to prepare the foods for the other seasons in which they are not available, and selling them at good prices. She is well known in her region with the good quality of products she sells, in addition to the special competitive prices she sets. She hopes to keep increasing her production and expanding her work to open a wide shop in the future.
