Fatimah's story

Meet Fatimah, a 42-year-old Lebanese married woman and mother of two children who are still attending school. Her husband is the main income provider in the family. He is a farmer who cultivates fruits and vegetables to sell in his town. Fatimah’s husband works very hard to cover the family's daily needs, but they are facing some financial problems and can’t keep sending their kids to school.

Fatimah is requesting a loan from Kiva partner Vitas s.a.l. to pay her children’s first installment of school fees and help them to continue their education suitably.
