Norma's story

Norma is a 24-year-old married Lebanese woman and a mother of three children, who are still attending school. Her little daughter is sitting next to her in the photo. Norma’s husband is the sole income provider for the family; he is a police officer in the municipality of his town. He works double shifts to meet the family needs and offer his children a good lifestyle.

Norma is a tender homemaker. She dedicates her life to her family, always eager to give them the best. Norma’s biggest dream is to ensure a suitable education for her kids. Therefore, she is requesting a loan from Kiva partner Vitas s.a.l. to cover her children’s expensive school fees and ensure them a bright future.
