She sells used shoes on the street in the commercial center. She is seeking a loan from Hekima to grow her business. She is going to buy 350 pairs of shoes. Her husband is in the same business. She had started the business with the funds from her husband. In the future, she hopes to make progress with her business, buy a plot of land, send her children to school, feed her children, and meet their medical needs.
