A loan helped to maintain her house's bathroom.

Lina's story

Lina is a 44-year-old married mother of two children. She is employed in a center for handicapped children and has taken care of their mental and educational development since five years ago. Though her income is low, and her work requires a lot of patience and perseverance, she is devoted to her job. Her husband works in the sales department of a store. Both her children are enrolled in private schools, which means that she and her husband have to pay tuition. She decided to contact Al Majmoua for a second time in a row because she needs financial support to maintain her house's bathroom. She cannot afford to do it with her own salary. In the future, Lina wishes to open her own center just like the one she works in so that she can provide the best care and education to disabled children.
