Fatima is a 30-year-old married mother of four children. She lives and work in a Palestinian camp to support her family and help her husband in covering their family's increasing needs.

Six years ago she started selling clothes and candies from her house. Today she's still working from her house because she can't afford the expenses of opening a separate shop.

Fatima is acquiring a YOUTH loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua, to increase her clothes capital with new autumn and winter collection and to start selling household appliances and accessories.

She is very excited for this loan which will diversify her products and increase her income and develop her business. She hopes that one day she'll be financially capable of supporting her family more and move to a separate multipurpose selling shop outside the camp.
