Al Shames Group's story

Hadla is the featured borrower of Al Shames group which consists of three Syrian refugee ladies. She is a 43-year-old married mother of six children who works in agriculture along with her husband in order to cover their big family's daily living expenses. Hadla and her husband will keep on striving and overcoming life's difficulties in order to ensure their children a proper education. They fled to Lebanon in 2014 in search of a safe environment to live with their family and stable working conditions. Hadla joined with Aisha and Khadija to acquire a refugee loan product from Kiva's field partner Al Majmoua. Hadla will use her loan share to pay for two of her children's school registration fees and to buy some carpets for her house for the winter.

The loving refugee mother hopes to improve her family's living conditions and to stay capable of supporting them.
