Amale's story

Amale is a 44-year-old married woman blessed with three children who are still attending school. Her oldest son is standing next to her in the photo. Her husband is the sole income provider in the family. He works very hard to fulfill the needs. He rented a small snack and billiards shop, where he offers delicious sandwiches and playful environment. Amale dedicated her life to her family and kids. Lately, the couple is facing some problems and they can’t afford the expensive school fees especially after the additional taxes imposed by the government on the tuition fees. Amale is requesting to borrow a loan from Kiva partner Vitas s.a.l. to pay her children's school fees and ensure them a suitable education.
