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

A loan helped to pay for needed legal documents.

Rouaa's story

Rouaa is a 34-year-old widowed Syrian mother of two for whom she works very hard. She's employed in a bakery providing cleaning services for which she receives a fixed salary.

She wishes to maintain a decent life for her children and she's always seeking to improve their living conditions. For this reason, Rouaa is acquiring a refugee loan from Kiva field partner Al Majmoua to pay for legal documents she needs.

Her previous loan paid for renewal of her own and her children's residency permits. Rouaa hopes to remain capable of supporting her children.
