Wajdi's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to pay for his child's school stationery fees.

Wajdi's story

Wajdi is a 51-year-old Syrian citizen, working as a house painter for living. He lives with his wife and two children aged 22 and 19 years old in Lebanon, seeking a peaceful living.

This is his first loan cycle from Kiva's field partner, Al Majmou. He is requesting this loan to pay for his child’s school stationery fees.

The needed loan is part of Kiva’s field partner, Al Majmoua's “Back-to-School” program, which is solely designed to finance school-related expenses such as tuition, books, stationery, transportation and other fees for students who belong to a low-income family. By contributing to this loan, you are helping Wajdi's child to receive proper education with no difficulties.
