Em El Ezz's story

Em El Ezz is a 65-year-old married mother of three children. She is of Egyptian origin and is married to a Lebanese man.

Em El Ezz has been working in agriculture since nine years ago; she sells vegetables and has a small convenience store at her house.

Em El Ezz is applying for a loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua for her lands' reclamation and to buy new seedlings to develop her business. Her husband also works as a farmer, but their combined revenues aren't enough to cover their family's expenses; that's why she has to work hard to help her husband in supporting their family's socioeconomic situation.

She is willing to develop her home-based business through diversifying her store's products to meet customers' needs.
