Alawiya, 51, is married with one child. Seventeen years ago, she started working in cleaning services at a school to help her husband make a living and cover their family's expenses. She works as hard as she can to support her family, especially since she and her husband work in very low-income businesses.

Alawiya has applied for a loan of $1,500 (US) from Kiva's partner, Al Majmoua, to make necessary maintenances to her house to maintain it as a healthy place to live.

She hopes to have a peaceful future and wishes to reach a time when she can rest and stop working in the cleaning business.
