Thanaa's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support


A loan helped to buy more goods for her food market and to diversify her products.


Thanaa's story

Thanaa is a 55-year-old widowed Lebanese mother of five children. She runs her own food market, where she benefits from a limited income to cover her children's daily living expenses.

Thanaa also provides cleaning services upon request in order to benefit from an additional source of income.

She is the sole provider of her family, and she works hard to improve their living conditions.

Thanaa is acquiring a loan from Kiva's field partner Al Majmoua to buy more goods for her food market and to diversify her products. Her previous loan was acquired for the same purpose as well.

The hardworking mother wishes a bright, successful future for her children and hopes to stay capable of supporting them.
