Hasnaa's story

Hasnaa is a 40-year-old married Lebanese woman, and she is a mother of five. She is acquiring this loan to pay for her children's school tuition fees.

The loan is part of Kiva’s field partner Al Majmoua's Back to School program, which is designed to finance school expenses such as books, stationery, transportation, and fees for students with low family incomes. Funds can be used for partial or complete payment of school expenses. By supporting this loan, you are enabling access to education for students with limited options.

Hasnaa hopes to continue providing for her children's needs and developing their social situation.

In the picture, her two sons are featured with her, one is in grade 1 and the other in grade 4.
