Kamila is a 45-year-old single woman who lives in a Palestinian camp in southern Lebanon, just like other Palestinian refugee seeking peace in Lebanon. She owns a small tailoring business and sells her products. She has been working in this field for about 15 years.

The dire living conditions in the camp are a burden on her shoulders and her father's, whom she lives with, because owning a small business in such a place is not very profitable. She decided to contact Al Majmoua to acquire a loan to help her purchase a new sewing machine and embroidery pieces.

As for the future, Kamila wishes to expand her business.
