A loan helped to pay for her residency permit fees.

Maryam's story

Maryam is a 25-year-old married Syrian refugee and a mother of two children who has several jobs to maintain all their needs. She provides cleaning services in addition to her work as a farmer and her recent new business in cosmetics and perfumes sales.

She has been in Lebanon for nine years and she needs to continuously renew her official residency papers. For this reason, she is acquiring a refugee loan product again from Kiva's field partner Al Majmoua to pay for her residency permit fees. Her previous loan helped her buy some cosmetics and perfumes to start her own retail business.

Maryam wishes to develop her business and increase her income to be able to always cover her own expenses and help her husband maintain their children's needs.
