Maysoun's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to provide her children with a better education, by buying the necessary items for their schooling and paying for their transportation.

Maysoun's story

Maysoun, the mother of the three children featured with her in the picture, is a 38-year-old married Palestinian refugee. She is responsible for the kitchen and cleaning services in an organization to help her husband cover the life and education expenses of their kids. As a Palestinian, she has no choice in the type of work as she is only offered limited job opportunities.

This is Maysoun’s fourth loan cycle from Al Majmoua. Today, she is willing to acquire a loan in order to help her children earn a better education through buying them all the necessary needs for their schooling as well as being able to pay for their transportation from their house to school.

Maysoun’s life revolves around her children and she dreams of a future where her kids become successful and able to support their future children.
