Al Wadi Al Akhdar Group's story

Al Wadi Al Akhdar is a group consisting of three married women who have their own home-based businesses.

Manal, the woman in the middle of the photo, is a 31-year-old Syrian woman who works selling milk and embroidery in Lebanon. Since living in Lebanon can be quite demanding, especially to non-Lebanese residents, Manal decided to start her own business and help her husband in providing a suitable life for their two children. This is why she started selling homemade milk and clothes, in addition to her work in embroidery.

She is now requesting a loan from Kiva’s field partner, Al Majmoua in order to buy wool for her embroidery business in addition to buying a winter collection to sell from home. By funding her loan, you are helping a Syrian family secure a sustainable job and provide their basic needs as human beings.

Nora, the woman on the left, and Shaymaa, the woman on the right, both are Lebanese women who work selling clothes and milk from their homes. The three of them want to provide a proper life for their children through maintaining their own businesses.
