Nawal 1 Group's story

Nawal is the featured borrower of Nawal1’s group. She got together with the other group members to acquire a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua because they have always been neighbors and friends. Their acquired loan is expected to improve their living and to expand their business.

Nawal is a 63-year-old married mother of six children. She works in preparing and selling "mouneh" (which is based on conserving current season fruits and vegetables to be consumed during other seasons). She has ten years of experience in this domain, with an excellent reputation. She is recommended by almost all of her customers, because of her quality of products served.

Her acquired loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua will be invested in opening a convenience store, where she will expand her working sector and display her products in a well managed way to be attracting enough for new customers.

She hopes to stay capable of financially supporting her husband in their living, since his very low income business (taxi driver) isn’t encouraging for a family to depend on.
