Al Ikhlas 1 Group's story

Maryam is the featured representative of Al Ikhlas 1 group. She and the other members of this group loan are best friends, and they’ve acquired a loan from Kiva’s field partner Al Majmoua so that they can improve their livelihoods together.

Maryam is a 57-year-old widowed mother of nine. After the death of her husband she struggled to provide her children with good living standards. She is a tailor and has been working in a tailoring factory since 2004. She has learned this profession from her parents who have trained her well. At first Maryam faced the challenge of making it to the factory's early working hours on time, but has since proved her reliability and commitment to her supervisors.

Maryam has also worked in agriculture for the past 10 years, and she puts so much effort on developing her own business properly to make sure she can acquire a good income.

Currently she is acquiring a loan from Kiva’s field partner Al Majmoua to pay the painting fees of her house to keep it a healthy living place. She is sitting in the far left side of the picture. Khadija is the lady wearing black at the far right side, while Ayat is the lady at the center.
