Najat's story

Najat is a loving mother of three children for whom she works very hard to ensure a decent life. She is a 61-year-old married Lebanese woman who runs her own home-based tailoring business and benefits from a limited income in addition to teaching tailoring in a school for the disabled. Najat always seeks ways that enable her to better help her family and improve their living conditions. For this reason, she is acquiring a loan from Kiva's field partner Al Majmoua to pay for her necessary medical tests. Najat hopes to stay capable of supporting her family.
