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

A loan helped to pay for some medical expenses and blood tests.

Nour Group's story

Nahed, on the right side of the picture, and Mayada, on the left side, are the borrowers of the Nour Group loan, and Nahed is the featured borrower. She is a 65-year-old, married Lebanese mother of four children. She has been running her own sewing business for 18 years to help her husband, who also works in the same domain to cover their family expenses.

Nahed is acquiring a loan, along with Mayada, to pay for some medical expenses and blood tests because her limited income does not cover all the costs.

This striving mother wishes to develop her business and have a small sewing factory with her husband in the future in order to increase their income and improve their living conditions.
