Hoda's story

Hoda is a 59-year-old married mother of five who has worked as a tailor from her house since she was 28 years old. Hoda is responsible for the living expenses of one member of her family in addition to her own living expenses.

She is in her thirteenth loan cycle with Kiva's partner, Al Majmoua, to improve her business productivity through buying necessary tailoring tools and accessories. She will invest part of her loan to help her beloved husband pay for part of his travel expenses to see his parents.

As for her future plans, Hoda is working hard to open a separate tailoring shop outside of her house which will provide her family and customers with preferable privacy.
