Wafaa's story

Wafaa is a 59-year-old widowed mother of one daughter. Ten years ago, she opened a clothing shop to cover the needs and expenses of her daughter, for she became the only breadwinner after her husband passed away. Wafaa is a sacrificing mother and a hard worker who deprives herself for the sake of her family. Today, she is acquiring a loan from Kiva's field partner Al Majmoua to pay her daughter's university tuition fees. Wafaa hopes to expand her business more in the future to increase her income and stay capable of improving her family's living conditions.
