Fatimah's story

Fatimah is a 33-year-old Lebanese married woman and mother of three children who are attending school. Her husband is the main income provider in the family. He works in the municipality of his town. To help her husband financially, Fatimah decided to work as a cleaner in a bank near her house. However, their salaries are unstable and not enough to cover daily life expenses. Currently, Fatimah is requesting a loan from Kiva partner Vitas s.a.l to cover her children’s expensive school fees and ensure them a good educational year.
