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


A loan helped to pay her three children's school fees and help them to continue their education suitably.


Nehmat's story

Nehmat is a 44-year-old Lebanese housewife and mother of four children, three of whom are still attending school.

Her husband is the sole provider for the family. To be able to pay the household expenses, he works as a school bus driver in the morning and then in a water company during the day. However, his salary isn’t enough due to the bad financial situations in the country and they can’t keep sending their kids to school.

Nehmat wants to help her husband but she can’t find any work. Therefore, she is requesting a loan from Kiva partner Vitas s.a.l. to pay her three children's school fees and help them to continue their education suitably.

This is her fourth loan and she has been a good borrower.
