A loan helped to pay her children's school tuition fees.

Josephine's story

Josephine is a 38-year-old Lebanese mother of four children. She is running her own grocery shop to help her husband in covering their family expenses. She is very careful to provide her children with better education opportunities regardless of any financial difficulty.

She is acquiring a loan from Kiva's field partner Al Majmoua to pay her children's school tuition fees, after her previous loan had covered some of her medical surgery expenses. Josephine hopes that her children can enjoy a proper education to become successful individuals in the future.

By contributing to this loan, you will be helping in providing education for students with limited education opportunities.
