Raed Group's story

Kawthar is the featured borrower of Raed group. She got together with the group to apply for a loan from Kiva partner, Al Majmoua, because they have always been neighbors and friends.

Kawthar is the lady at the far left of the picture wearing blue. She is a 43-year-old married mother of two children. She has been working in the embroidery business since fifteen years ago to help her husband in making their living and covering their children’s increasing expenses.

Kawthar is preparing her daughter for her wedding, and as a gift, she is preparing special embroidery for which she needs extra accessories to finish. That's why she is acquiring a loan from Kiva partner, Al Majmoua, to buy necessary threads, textiles and accessories to make the necessary embroidery for her daughter's wedding gift.

She is very excited about this loan, and she was hoping if she had the extra money she would prepare an extraordinary handmade gift that will fulfill her daughter's needs.
