Safaa's story

Safaa is a 35-year-old married Lebanese mother of three children. She works as a translator from her home where she benefits from a limited income. Safaa works hard along with her husband in order to cover their family's living expenses. Her children's education is her main priority. For this reason, she is acquiring this loan from Kiva's field partner Al Majmoua to pay for her children's school tuition fees.

The loving mother hopes to stay capable of supporting her children's education.
