A loan helped to pay for her children's school fees to get a good education.


Rania's story

Meet a reputable and energetic lady named Rania! She is 44 years old, a Palestinian married woman with 3 kids who attend school. She lives with her modest family in a rented house located in Mount Lebanon. Her husband works at the airport, while she established her beauty salon four years ago at home in order to help her husband in household expenses and to secure a good life for her kids.

For the first time, Rania is asking for a loan from IBDAA, a Kiva partner.

She requested this loan to pay for her children's school fees in order to get a good education and high paying jobs in the future.

She will allocate a small portion to purchase cosmetics in order to support her business, attract more customers and gain large profits.

Rania is an ambitious and humble woman full of hope and good manners. She is a loyal mother who has an amazing reputation among customers in the vicinity of her house.


This loan is special because:

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