A loan helped to buy raw materials for sewing, additional mortar, and food products to facilitate her work.


Laurance's story

Laurance is asking for a loan from Ibdaa, a Kiva partner, for the second time. She earns an income by tailoring, and by preparing mortars from home for sale. Her three children still live with her, and hasn't remarried after the death of her husband.

Laurance needs the loan to buy additional mortar, raw materials, and food products to facilitate her work and meet all of her client's needs quickly.

Laurance is professional in both of her jobs, the tailoring and the mortar preparation. Her main concern is to earn a better income to ensure good living conditions for her children and to ameliorate their financial situation.


This loan is special because:

It doesn’t require a guarantor, reaching underserved women in Lebanon.
