Hoda's story

Hoda is a 47-year-old widowed woman blessed with two children, one of whom is still attending school. Her son is standing next to her in the photo.

After the death of her husband, she became the main income provider; she took all his responsibilities and worked hard to ensure to her kids a good way of living. She has been working in the homemade food business since 2015. She prepares all kind of provisions, such olives, oil, pickles, herbal teas, jams, and compotes and sells them in the neighborhood.

Hoda is facing some financial problems due to the bad circumstances in the country, especially after the government imposed additional taxes on educational subscriptions. Therefore, she is requesting a loan from Kiva partner Vitas s.a.l. to cover her son's school fees and help him to continue his education suitably.
