Fahda is a 44-year-old divorced mother of two children. She is working hard to develop her business to provide them with the best living conditions and education. She has been working for four years in preparing and selling special creamy minced garlic. It is specialized for restaurants where it is served with all kinds of chicken and in most sandwiches to add a delicious juicy taste. Fahda's business is going on just fine, but needs development to increase her family's income and meet her children's needs. She is applying for a loan from Kiva Partner Al Majmoua, to increase her business merchandise to expand her business.

Through the loan, Fahda will buy more garlic and special containers so she can pack her production and distribute it among customers. This increase in production will reflect positively on her family's socioeconomic situation. Fahda will work hard to develop and expand her business; she will also work on diversifying her production, but in the meantime she has no idea about the new item she's going to start with.
