Al-Ousfoura 14194 Group's story

Al Ousfoura is a group composed of three Lebanese women living in a village in Mount Lebanon. They decided to join together and acquire a group loan from Al Majmoua because they are all participating in a gallery to exhibit accessories. Each of them needs a loan to buy accessories and products to sell during the exhibition. Noura is the leader and featured member of this group. She is a 47-year-old married mother of four children, standing on the left in the picture. In her daily life, she works as an employee in a printing house. Her husband owns a small gypsum manufacturing business. Her children are enrolled in private high schools, which means that she has to cover the tuition fees on top of her other expenses. The Al Majmoua loan would be truly beneficial, because it would help her develop her own business, especially through buying newly released accessories. Rouhaifa is a 46-year-old married mother of three children, standing at the right of the picture. She is Noura's colleague in the printing house. Her husband works in construction as a painter. Her three children are enrolled in private high schools. The exhibition would help her a lot in raising the family’s income, thus covering the tuition expenses. Itidal is a 38-year-old married mother of two children, standing in the center of the picture. She is employed in a shop that arranges flowers for weddings. Her husband owns a small business, where he decorates houses and renovates furniture. The Al Majmoua loan, which would help her acquire the necessary materials for the exhibition, would be highly beneficial for her future career plans.
