Iman is a 49-year-old, married woman. She is the mother of two children. Iman is a Palestinian refugee, living in a Palestinian camp like most of the other Palestinians in Lebanon. Iman used to work in agriculture, but she began to feel sick and tired from such work. That is why she turned to a line of work that does not require too much effort. She opened a grocery store in 2007. The income that she earns running the store is necessary, to help her husband in making their living. Her husband works making fishing nets, which is hard work with a very low income that barely covers their needs.

Iman is taking her fifth loan from Kiva's partner, Al Majmoua, in order to increase her business merchandise by adding special summer beverages and ice cream.

Her previous loans helped her a lot in developing her newly-established business, and she proved to be reliable in paying back her loans. She is a borrower in good standing. Iman is working hard, to keep on developing and expanding her business in a greater way, and she is hoping to start wholesale trading in the future.
