A loan helped to send money to her parents in Syria to cover some of their daily living expenses.


Fateema Group's story

Intisar is the featured borrower of Fateema Group, which consists of two refugee ladies. She is a 35-year-old married Syrian refugee mother of four children for whom she works very hard. Intisar works cleaning houses where she benefits from a limited income to help her beloved husband. She joined with Fatima to acquire a refugee loan product from Kiva's field partner, Al Majmoua. She will use her loan share to send money to her parents in Syria to cover some of their daily living expenses. Her previous loan was acquired for the same purpose. This hardworking mother hopes to go back to her hometown one day and to stay capable of supporting her family.
