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


A loan helped to cover her English courses fees and to be able to start her home-based business as a private teacher.


Amale's story

Amale is a 24-year-old Lebanese woman who lives in a small village in the mountain of Lebanon with her husband. Her husband is the main income provider in the family. He is a soldier in the army, but his income is barely sufficient. As for her, she is a tender homemaker who is always ready to help her husband. Recently the couple has been facing some financial problems.

Therefore, Amale decided to take some English courses and improve her teaching skills. Today, she looks to borrow a loan from Kiva partner Vitas s.a.l. to cover her English course fees and to be able to start her home-based business as a private teacher.

She said that this is her first loan from Kiva and she is always eager to borrow more loans to open a small educational center in the village to help all the kids.
