Hamidi is a hard-working woman who puts a lot of effort into developing and improving her family's living. She applied for a loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua, in order to purchase extra flour at competitive prices.
This is her fourth cycle as an Al Majmoua borrower with good standing in her paying-back history. Hamidi is well-known in her region for the specially baked traditional breakfast bread 'Manakish' and bread with special toppings applied over it.
Hamidi hopes to buy an automatic oven that will increase her production and her income at the same time.
