A loan of $1,500 helped to help her husband to buy a car so he can start his taxi business and improve his family's living conditions.


Samaher's story

Samaher is a 21-year-old youth and a married mother of one. She is a Palestinian refugee who lives with her family in a Palestinian refugee camp which is a slum that lacks many basic human needs. She started her home-based beauty salon almost three years ago to help her husband with house expenses. Samaher is a first-time borrower from Kiva's field partner, Al Majmoua and she wishes to use this entrepreneur loan in order to help her husband to buy a car so he can start his taxi business and improve his family's living conditions. This would significantly help Samaher and her husband in increasing their family income.


This loan is special because:

It benefits refugees who have been marginalized.
