Fatima is a 34-year-old married mother of two who has been running her own shoes-selling shop since January 2009 to support her beloved husband in covering their family's increasing expenses.

Her business is going just fine, but she needs external additional support to increase her business capital. For this reason, Fatima is acquiring a loan from Kiva's field partner Al Majmoua to increase her business merchandise with a specially released summer collection, especially before the Holy month of Ramadan celebrations.

Fatima is working hard to open a wider shoe exhibition to attract more customers and increase her selling and develop her family's living.
