A loan of $1,000 helped to add a new bedroom to her house.

Layla's story

Layla is a widowed mother of two children, whom she has been taking care of since her husband passed away twenty years ago, leaving her with two babies to take care of and be the mother and the father at the same time.

She started her home-based business to make sure that she could take care of both her children and run a business at the same time. She started a Mouneh business, which is based on conserving food from one season to another in a very special way. She also prepares tomato pastes to be used in certain cooking needs, as well as several kinds of jam.

Her business is quite enough to cover her family's needs, but not for any extra required need. Today, Layla is acquiring a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua to add a new bedroom to her house. She hopes that one day in the future she'll be able to take care of necessary maintenance to the whole place and to open a separate working place.
