A loan helped to buy more fabrics to expand her bedding sewing business.


Basma's story

Basma is a 48 year old Jordanian single mother of four. Three of her children attend school while the eldest goes to university.

After her husband took a second wife and left her with no money to manage the house and provide for her children's daily basic needs, Basma was forced to find a way to support her family. As such, she started her own business sewing bedding and selling it to people.

She applied to get an amount of 500 JD from Kiva to grow herself in her business in order to support her children having a good life and achieving their dreams of a good education.


This loan is special because:

It empowers the most vulnerable and marginalized women in Jordan.
