A loan helped to pay for her children's school tuition fees.

Fatima's story

Fatima is an independent, widowed, Lebanese mother and the sole breadwinner of three children. The 41-year-old woman is working in a medical clinic to provide for all their living needs after her husband passed away.

She is acquiring a loan from Kiva’s field partner, Al Majmoua, to pay for her children's school tuition fees because her limited income does not cover all the education costs.

The striving woman hopes her children will enjoy a prosperous future and wants to be able to cover all their needs continuously.
