Al Narjess Group's story

Mariam is the featured borrower of the Al Narjess Group. She has got together with the other group members to acquire a youth loan from Kiva's partner, Al Majmoua, because they have always been neighbors and friends.

Mariam is a 21-year-old single lady, who has had a shop that sells special accessories, cosmetics, bags, and gifts for the past three years. She is the sole breadwinner for four members of her family, which requires much effort to continue to develop her current business to ensure that it earns enough to cover their increasing necessary living needs.

Through her acquired loan, Mariam will increase her business merchandise with special newly released products that will meet her customers' needs and requests, especially for the coming spring and summer seasons. She hopes to continue to expand her business in the future and especially to start wholesale trade if possible.
