but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy a fried chicken machine and expand the types of food the restaurant provides.

Yousra's story

Yousra is a Syrian refugee living in Jordan. She is a mom for 5 married boys, and lives in the Ramtha village which is in the north of Jordan and only 20 km away from the Syrian border. In 2013, Yousra and her extended family left Syria running from the war. They found themselves in a position where they need to find a new source of income and start from scratch. Yousra’s Husband decided to benefit from his experience working in restaurants in the past. Together, Yousra and her husband started a small restaurant that sells Arabic breakfast with their kids, as Syrians are so famous for their delicious food. This family business is responsible to cover the basic needs for around 30 members. Yousra applied for a 400 JOD loan from Kiva field partner Microfund for Women. Her purpose is to buy a machine for fried chicken, which will allow her to expand the types of food that the restaurant serves in order to secure a better life for the whole family.
