A loan helped to pay her children's expensive school fees and help them to achieve their dreams.


Mariam's story

Mariam is a 29-year-old Lebanese married woman blessed with four children. Mariam’s husband is the sole income provider in the family, and works very hard to pay the big family's daily expenses and offer them a good life style. He owns a cafeteria and computer game shop where he provides coffee and snacks to passing cars and clients.

Mariam doesn’t work, as she is a homemaker always ready to give the best to her family. Recently, Mariam’s husband has been facing some economic problems, and he can’t afford the expensive school fees. Therefore, she is requesting a loan from Kiva's partner Vitas to pay her children's expensive school fees and help them to achieve their dreams.
