A loan of $2,525 helped to purchase a stock of basic groceries and make improvements to the store's condition.


Zahr's story

Zahr, 41, is married and mother to two sons and two daughters. She is a conservative person who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband, Mamdooh, appears in her Kiva profile. This picture was taken in his grocery store.

Zahr is a housewife; her husband earns a low pension, which is not enough to cover the family's needs. For the past five years, Zahr's husband has had a grocery store, selling different types of groceries. This has been a profitable project but it does not generate enough to cover costs.

Zahr is requesting a Murabaha loan (see below for explanation) from Palestine for Credit and Development to help her husband purchase the basic groceries that customers often request, such as rice, sugar and milk, and to improve the store's condition with the installation of additional shelves. These investments will increase sales and the family's income.
