Rimas Group's story

Samira is the featured representative of the Rimas group. She joined with her best friends who trust each other to acquire a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua,

They all intend to improve their lives and this loan is their only hope.

Samira is the lady standing in the center of the picture, with the green veil covering her hair. She is a 42 year-old divorced mother of one child. She has worked as a supervisor, providing cleaning services for the past four years. Her years of experience make her more energetic and that makes her work go by faster.

Samira has been working hard to provide her only child with all of the necessary life demands including an education. Although he lives with his father, she never stops working hard to make sure he has a better future.

Samira wants to start a new clothes selling business with her sister Beykeh, a 45-year-old single lady, standing at the far right side of the picture wearning the dark blue top. She has also worked in the cleaning business for four years.

Fatima, the 39year-old single lady on the far left side of the photo, has worked in the clothes selling business for the past two years.
