Ruwanda's story

Greetings from Ruwanda! Ruwanda is a 56-year-old Palestinian married woman. She has three young kids, ranging in age between 18 and 23, who attend university. She lives with her family in a rented house located in the Akkar area. Her husband was abroad and sent her money monthly. After her husband's death, she decided to rely on herself and be a productive person. She established her business one year ago at home and started tailoring. Ruwanda says that there is no force more powerful than a woman determined to rise.

For the first time, Ruwanda is asking for a loan from Ibdaa, a Kiva partner. She requested this loan to purchase a new set of fabrics in order to support her tailoring business. Ruwanda plans to increase her productivity in order to attract more customers and increase the level of her profits.

Ruwanda believes that behind every successful lady is herself. Besides, she accentuated that in order to succeed, women should believe in themselves. She has a marvelous reputation among customers and neighbors in the area. She thanks you for your support!
