Leila's story

Leila is a 49-year-old, married, Syrian refugee and mother of five children. She works in agriculture where she benefits from a daily income that helps cover her family's living expenses.

Leila fled to Lebanon with her family in 2012 to escape war and find a secure environment and stable working conditions. She is acquiring a refugee loan product from Kiva field partner, Al Majmoua, that she will use to buy living room furniture and a refrigerator for her house.

This hardworking mother hopes to stay capable of supporting her family and to improve their living standards.
