A loan of $1,725 helped to buy a fridge to preserve food in order to develop the business and to increase income.


Abir's story

Abir is 42 years old; a married woman who lives with her three children in an owned apartment in Chouf. Her husband works abroad, and she takes care of her children where her priority is their future and their education. Ten years ago, Abir established her home-based business for homemade food preparation and selling.

Abir is known for the delicious taste of food which she prepares, and has a good reputation.

For the first time, Abir is asking for a loan from Ibdaa, a Kiva partner: she needs to buy a new fridge to preserve food.

In that way she will be able to develop her work and to keep the business going, which will lead to an increase in her income and an improvement in her financial situation. This will let her have better living conditions and provide a better future for her children to achieve their dreams.


This loan is special because:

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