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

A loan helped to pay her daughter’s tuition at the medical college so she can continue her studies and have a higher quality of life in the future.

Saibi's story

Saibi is married and raising her two children. She is a 55-year-old, honest, and bright woman from Yavan, Tajikistan. She is the main provider in her family and works hard to ensure a good life for them and to ensure that they do not need anything.

She works in a primary school as a teacher and has several years of experience. She knows all aspects of her profession well and is respected by her colleagues.

Saibi appealed to IMON, asking for a loan to pay her daughter’s tuition fees. Her daughter is going to the medical college for her first year of study. Saibi tries to educate and protect her children. She hopes they will have good knowledge and find well-placed jobs.

She is awaiting Kiva lenders' kindness and compassion.
