Christine Group's story

Najah is the featured borrower of Christine Group, which is consisting of two Syrian refugee women.

She is a 37-year-old married mother of six children who has been working in agricultural fields since two years ago. She is helping her husband, who is working also in agriculture, to cover the expenses of their big family.

Najah got along with Fatima to acquire a refugee group loan from Kiva's field partner Al Majmoua to start up her own business in sewing and buy a sewing machine for increasing her income.

The hardworking mother wishes to succeed in her new business and to be able to improve her family living conditions and maintain their increasing needs.
