Iman is a 23-year-old engaged lady, who has worked as a tutor for six years. She also works as a supervisor in a private school during the morning, in order to cover her three other family members' living expenses, since she is their sole breadwinner.

Iman is preparing herself for her wedding; she is working hard to support her beloved fiance in supporting him in everything he pays for their future house. For this reason, and since her income barely covers her family's increasing needs, she is requesting a YOUTH loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua, to buy necessary housewares, and help her fiance pay for their kitchen's wood work.

This is Iman's second loan from Al Majmoua, her previous loan was requested to pay for her university tuition fees. She hopes to finish her education and graduate to benefit from a better job in the future.
