Fatimah's story

Fatimah is a 46-year-old Lebanese married woman and mother of three children, one of whom is still attending school. She collaborates with her husband to ensure her kids a good lifestyle and to pay their life expenses.

She has been working as a private teacher since 2010 to offer her husband an additional financial support. She finished her pedagogical education at the local university and started her work. Fatimah loves her profession and always gives the best education she can. She arranged a special room in her house to receive students, and she visits them sometimes at their places.

Recently the couple is facing some financial problems due to the bad situations in the country and the fact that they are a big family. Fatimah is requesting a loan from Kiva partner, Vitas s.a.l., to pay her child's expensive school fees and support her husband financially. She is awaiting your help.
