Souad's story

Greetings from an energetic woman named Souad! She is a 58-year-old married Lebanese woman who lives in an owned apartment in the Bekaa area with her husband and children.

She runs a business selling different kinds of products, vegetables and fruits. The business is doing well.

Souad is requesting a loan from Ibdaa, a Kiva field partner, to purchase additional food products for her business. This will enable her to attract more clients, meeting all their needs and thus increasing her income.

She is working hard, bringing much dedication and passion to her work. She is an ambitious and humble woman, full of hope and good manners. She is an honest wife who has a marvelous reputation among customers in the area. Souad thanks you for your support!
