Fatima's story

Fatima is a 52-year-old divorced Palestinian mother of seven children. She sacrificed her whole life, working hard to provide them with a good standard of living. Fatima has been working in the business of preserving foods (Mouneh) for twelve years, and it is her only source of income. Her business is located inside her house, because as a Palestinian refugee, she wasn't financially capable of opening a separate business. At the same time she had to stay next to her children to take good care of them while she is running her business.

Fatima is a hard worker with a very good reputation in the camp where she lives and works. She is acquiring a loan from Kiva partner, Al Majmoua, to increase her business merchandise with raw materials in order to increase her production before the winter season. She will buy Sumac, Thyme, and olives.

This is Fatima's third cycle as an Al Majmoua borrower. Through her previous loans she was capable of increasing her business capital and responding better to her children's needs. She hopes that in the future she will be capable of diversifying her products and expanding her work zone.
