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

A loan helped to cover her daughter’s school fees and ensure her a good education this year.

Souad's story

Souad is a 28-year-old Lebanese, married woman. She is also the mother of one adorable daughter (sitting next to her in the photo), who is attending school.

Her husband is the main income provider in the family; he works at a water company. A vocation to financially help her husband led Souad to work as an administrative assistant in a public school near her house. However, their salaries are unstable and not enough to cover the daily life expenses.

Currently, Souad is requesting a loan from the Kiva partner, Vitas s.a.l, to cover her daughter’s expensive school fees and ensure her a good education this year.
