Batoul's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support


A loan helped to cover her five children's school registration fees, purchase all the needed books and stationary, and ensure them a good year of education.


Batoul's story

Meet Batoul, this tender housewife blessed with five school-aged children. Batoul is a caring 26-year-old woman who is always ready to give her family the best. Her little daughter is standing next to her in the photo.

Her husband is the sole income provider in the family. He is a sergeant in the army. Batoul’s husband works so hard to pay the household expenses and ensure the family a good way of living, but his income isn’t enough, due to the bad situation in the country.

Today, Batoul is requesting a loan from Kiva's partner, Vitas, to cover her five children's school registration fees, purchase all the needed books and stationary, and ensure them a good year of education.
