Nojoud's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to pay for her necessary medical-test expenses.

Nojoud's story

Nojoud is a 46-year-old divorced Lebanese mother of two children. She is employed as a secretary in a company where she benefits from a fixed monthly salary. This is in addition to running her own home-based embroidery and tailoring business to benefit from an additional source of income.

Nojoud believes that the extra income she earns will enable a change in her life and improve her financial condition, which will help her in repaying her loan. She is acquiring this loan from Kiva's field partner Al Majmoua to pay for her necessary medical-test expenses. Her previous loan was acquired for the same purpose as well. This is Nojoud's ninth loan cycle from Al Majmoua in which she proved to be an outstanding borrower with a good repayment history.

She wishes for a happy healthy life with her children, and she hopes to see them in reputable positions one day.
