Sahar's story

Sahar is a 39-year-old Lebanese striving mother of one child who overcame all her financial and social problems after she got divorced. She is working as an accountant in a company to cover her only child's living needs, especially a proper education.

She is acquiring a loan from Kiva's field partner Al Majmoua to pay the school tuition fees of her only daughter and build her a successful future.

Sahar proved that she can defeat any problem she will face in the future and is hoping that she can find a prosperous business to maintain her child's expenses.
