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


A loan helped to buy different types of clothes for women in her village in order to increase her income.


Zawat's story

Zawat is 37, married, and has two children. Her husband works in Cairo as a laborer, and she has a small clothing business. She helps her husband in household expenses. She asked before for two loans and she repaid all the installments on due dates.

Zawat wants to add some new and modern types of clothes for brides and women because she wants to develop her business and expand it.

So, she is requesting a loan to buy different types of clothes for women in her village in order to increase her income to finish the painting and electric works in her house. She is seeking a better living for her children. She is hoping that Kiva lenders will support her like the other loans.
