Fatmeh is a 23-year-old Lebanese married woman. She lives with her husband and only child. She has worked as a private teacher since 2010. She likes her occupation because she feels that she is helping students to get the needed education. She has arranged a special room in her house where she receives her students and equipped it with required materials and supplies. Her husband works as a salesman in a local company, and they cooperate to collect enough money to be able to pay the heavy life expenses.

Today, Fatmeh is applying for a youth loan from Kiva partner Vitas s.a.l to purchase books to improve her teaching skills and renovate the teaching room to be able to receive students appropriately. She is very positive about her future and wishes to receive more students with the coming school season.
