A loan helped to pay her dental medication expenses.


Israa's story

Israa is a 31-year-old Palestinian mother, a refugee living in a poor area in a Palestinian refugee camp. She runs her own hairdressing and makeup business from her home to cover her five children's living needs and expenses with her husband.

Due to increasing economic expenses, she was unable to pay for her medical needs, so she acquired a loan from Kiva's field partner Al Majmoua to pay her dental medication expenses.

The struggling mother hopes to develop her business and have her own beauty salon in the future to attract more customers and support her family.


This loan is special because:

It benefits refugees who have been marginalized.
