Omar's story

Omar is a 48-year-old married Lebanese father of two children. He works in construction, specialized in pasting tiles, and he generates limited income to cover his family's daily living expenses. Omar makes every effort for the sake of his family and to maintain a decent life for them and a proper education.

Omar is acquiring a back-to-school loan product from Kiva's field partner Al Majmoua to pay for his child's school tuition fees.

This loving father hopes to stay capable of maintaining regular payments for his children's education until they graduate from universities.
