Banat Al Dayaa Group's story
Banat Al Dayaa is a group composed of three Lebanese friends, Nisrine, Randa and Amina They decided to join hands, form a group, trust each other and acquire a group loan from Al Majmoua in order to financially support each other. Each of them has a special financial need, and the loan would be a great advantage to pull them out of their situation. Nisrine is the leader and featured member of this group. She is a 30-year-old married mother of one child, standing in the center of the picture. She is currently unemployed but has farming skills, which also happens to be her hobby. Her husband is a soldier in the Lebanese army. Their combined monthly income is not sufficient to provide a healthy life for three individuals, which is why Nisrine decided to invest in her skills and start her own business. In fact, she decided to join the group and acquire a loan in order to purchase tomato seeds and farming materials. This will allow her to launch her own farm, and prepare "Mouneh" (food that is conserved from one season to the next). The farm would allow her family to have a better socioeconomic situation. Concerning the other group members, Randa is the woman standing on the right in the picture, while Amina is the woman standing on the left.
