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

A loan helped to pay for her university degree in sociology, so she can get a degree and start working in her field.

Mariam's story

Mariam is a third-year student at Ilia State University, where she started studying with the great assistance of Kiva lenders.

She studies sociology and is very motivated to learn her profession thoroughly and also continue studying toward a master's degree.

Marian also works as a private teacher and generates a small income.

She began obtaining funding again through local credit providers and was approved under the educational loan program, as she pays her financial liability reliably.

This will be a great help for Mariam, who's very confident about her potential and promises to make her dreams a reality.
