Layale is a 28-year-old single Lebanese woman. She lives with her parents and three siblings, who attend school.

Layale has worked as a private teacher since 2008. She likes her job because she feels that she is helping learners to get a needed education. She also works as a teacher in a local school to supplement her income. Her father is the family's main source of income, and they cooperate to gather enough money to be able to pay the large expenses of life.

Today, Layale is applying for a youth loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to arrange a special room in her house to receive her students at home and to equip it with the needed materials. She notes that these purchases will facilitate her work preparation. She is very optimistic and wishes to receive more students with the coming school season.
