A loan of $2,700 helped a member to buy a cow.

Al Zahra Al Baydaa Group's story

Fatima is the featured borrower of the Al Zahra Al Baydaa group. She got together with the other group members to acquire a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua since they are all working hard to develop both their businesses and their family's living.

Fatima is the first lady lady from the right; she is a 55-year-old married mother of six children. She has been working 23 years selling clothes, 15 years in the housekeeping business, and 12 years raising cows. She runs these three businesses at the same time to make sure that she can provide her family with the necessary living needs. Since their needs are increasing, she has to run more than one business to cover their needs.

Fatima's is willing to keep on increasing her family's income, so her acquired loan will be invested in buying a cow which will help her a lot in her business development and increase her income to make sure that all of her family's needs are met.

As for the other group members, Hamida is at the center, and Hiba is the first from the left.
