A loan of $2,000 helped to increase her business merchandise with a special summer collection.


Amal's story

Amal is a 49-year-old married woman and the mother of two children. She has been working in selling clothes, accessories and lingerie since 18 years ago. Her husband works as a taxi driver with a very low income that is not enough to cover all his family's needs.

Both of her children work too, with very small incomes, in order to help in their family's expenses.

Amal is applying for her ninth loan cycle from Kiva's partner, Al Majmoua, in order to increase her business merchandise with a special summer collection. Her previous loans helped her a lot in responding to her family's needs and increasing her business capital.

She hopes to keep on pleasing her customers and family as much as she can. Most of her customers are relatives, neighbors and friends. But her house is located in a very high-population area, which encourages her to expand her business.
