Darine A. S. has owned a mini-market in Jnah, a suburb of Beirut, since 1996. A mother of three, she opened this small business to help her husband with the family's income and to pay for their children's schooling. Her mini-market is situated in a busy area, so she has been able, over the years, to have a growing number of clients pass by her shop and buy all type of food products.

Today she requests a loan of $1200 to buy more inventory and continue to cater to her clientele.
