Zanoubia has been employed as an assistant for the past five years, and this is her only source of income. Her low earnings are not enough to cover her family's increasing needs, which is why she is requesting a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua. She will use her loan funds to pay for her children's increasing school tuition fees.
Zanouba is well-known in her region. She has a good reputation and is respected for her hard work, both at her place of employment and within the community, especially since she is her family's sole breadwinner.
Her goal is to one day open her own children's daycare center. She intends to work hard to make her dream come true. This will significantly improve her family's socioeconomic situation.
