Amale's story

Amale is a 54-year-old Lebanese married woman who lives with her husband and five children, two of whom are still attending school. Her daughter is standing next to her in the photo. Amale’s husband is the main income provider in the family; he works as a car blacksmith in his own garage near his house. Amale is a caring housewife who dedicated her life to her family.

Although Amale’s husband is hardworking, the family is facing some financial problems and their income is barely sufficient to pay the household expenses and the school fees. Today, she is requesting to borrow a loan from Kiva partner Vitas s.a.l. to cover her two children's school fees, pay the school bus installment subscriptions and help them to get a bright future.
