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

A loan helped to pay for the school tuition fees of her son, who is in grade 8.

Hala's story

Hala is a 35-year-old, married Lebanese mother of one child, and a creative musician who plays on a special instrument called the Oud and works as a music teacher. She also runs her own business in beauty care, specializing in nails and eyebrows, to cover her child's expenses.

She is acquiring a loan from Kiva's field partner Al Majmoua to pay for the school tuition fees of her son, who is in grade 8, after her previous loan helped her pay for his education expenses last year.

This caring mother wishes to provide her only child the best education opportunities to enjoy a prosperous future and be capable of running his own business.
