Mirna is a 29-year-old married woman, mother of three children, who has been working as a tutor for five years. Mirna is a hard worker who is putting so much effort to help her husband in covering their children needs.

Mirna is applying for a youth loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua in order to open a tutoring center, to attract more students and increase her income to develop their living. This is her third cycle as an Al Majmoua borrower with a good standing pay back history. Her previous loans helped her buy extra laptops and special tutoring needs to help her teach her students better at her house. She hopes that one day she might turn her tutoring center into an important school.
