Samah's story

Samah is a 34-year-old married Lebanese mother of two children. She runs her own online clothing retail business where she benefits from a limited income to help her husband in covering their family's expenses.

Samah strives for the sake of her children and to provide them a proper education. For this reason, she is acquiring a loan from Kiva's field partner, Al Majmoua, to pay for her children's school tuition fees.

Samah works hard along with her husband, who is employed in a company and benefits from a fixed monthly salary, in order to ensure their children a decent life.

The loving mother wishes her children a bright, successful future.
