Al Hadi 1 Group's story

Lara is the featured borrower of Al Hadi 1 Group, which consists of three Lebanese women who are cooperating to improve their living conditions.

Lara is a 33-year-old divorced mother of three children who overcame all her social and financial difficulties. She succeeded in running her own business in selling telephone prepaid cards and accessories since three years ago.

Lara got along with Hanan and Ghaneya to acquire a loan from Kiva's field partner Al Majmoua to develop her business. She will use her loan share to buy more prepaid cards and perfumes for her store to diversify her products and attract more customers.

This strong independent woman wishes to develop her business and have a prosperous future to cover all her children needs.
