Jamila is a 28-year-old married mother of two children. She has been working in her convenience store for two years to help her husband cover their family's expenses. Both of her children are enrolled in a private school and they want to make sure their children will have the best education ever.
Jamila's husband works but with a very low income and she is a good support to him.

She is applying for her second loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua to acquire a YOUTH loan that will increase her business merchandise with special Summer and Holy Ramadan month items (cold beverages, dried fruits and dates).

This loan will support her business just like the previous one which had a very positive impact on her family's socioeconomic situation.

She hopes to expand her business and diversify her products.
