A loan of $1,450 helped to buy foodstuffs and products that are needed for Ramadan.


Khitam's story

Khitam is a conservative woman, so she let her husband take her place in the picture.

Khitam was born in 1967. She lives in a rented house in Amman, Jordan. Khitam has been working with her husband for five years in selling foodstuffs at her mini-market. One of the obstacles they faced is that they still didn't get a license for their mini-market.

She is planning to expand her project by bringing more foodstuffs to her mini-market in order to increase her sales. Now she is seeking a loan to buy foodstuffs and products, which her customers are requesting and that are needed for Ramadan.
