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

A loan helped to buy more food products to support her home-based food-production business.

Rua'a's story

Rua'a is a 24-year-old Jordanian married woman and mother of one child. Her husband is a retired soldier and is an employee in the private sector.

As the salary her husband makes is not enough to cover their needs, Rua'a started a home-based food-production business to help her family with an extra source of income. The challenges are many but she insists on reaching her dream and continue supporting her business.

Now to keep supporting her business, she needs to buy more goods such as flour and other food products, but she lacks the financial ability. Rua'a decided to ask for a 800 JOD loan to get the needed goods. She hopes for a better future and that she can help other people.

Note: Due to the current coronavirus pandemic, staff from Kiva's Field Partner Microfund for Women are working from home and temporarily do not have access to their internal loan system which stores this borrower's exact repayment schedule. In order to ensure they can still post borrowers in need to the Kiva website, this loan was posted with an approximate repayment schedule, in the form of a single bullet payment at the end of the loan. However, Microfund for Women will report and send repayments to Kiva as they are actually collected.
