Aziza is a 48-year-old, married mother of three children. She has been working in arranging and selling artificial flowers, in addition to gifts, since twelve years ago. Her husband is a farmer, and their combined, low income isn't enough to cover their additional, unexpected needs. That's why she applied for a loan from Kiva's partner, Al Majmoua.

She will invest the loan in their land's restoration and in buying requested fertilizers, to help her husband in developing his farming business. This investment of the loan will help them improve the productivity of their farmland, which will positively affect their socioeconomic situation. Two of their children work in order to cover their own needs. Aziza and her husband are working hard to help their third child to finish his university degree. They put much hope in this child's education, since Aziza had the chance to reach the intermediate level unfortunately.

Aziza hopes to develop her own business and start decorating weddings, in the future.
