Layla's story

Layla, age 63 and widowed, has been running her convenience store business for the past seven years. Her business allows her to make her living and cover her living expenses. She is a woman with a very good reputation in her area, and she is a borrower in good standing with Kiva partner Al Majmoua.

Layla is requesting her fifth loan. She will use her loan funds to enhance her business merchandise with special-offer products, and to diversify her products in order to satisfy the requirements of her customers, thus increasing her income.

Her previous loans helped her a great deal in expanding her inventory, allowing her to add several new products. She is investing much hope in this current loan, and is hopeful that it will fulfill her customers' needs.
