A loan helped to buy a sewing machine in order to make extra income for her family.


Aurora's story

Aurora is a 24-year-old woman and a member of the vulnerable Egyptian community. She is married and lives with her husband and her elderly mother-in-law. To provide for her family, Aurora works as a tailor while her husband works as a painter. To help her husband with the family income, Aurora has a second job of cleaning houses whenever possible. However, she wants to stop cleaning houses and buy a sewing machine to offer her services to her neighbors as a way of earning extra income.

Aurora is requesting support from the Kiva lenders for the second time. With her first loan, she managed to buy a washing machine, which has been a great help with the housework.

Aurora thanks the lenders for all of their support and wishes them and their families all the best!


This loan is special because:

It helps heavily marginalized Roma and Egyptian women create better lives for their families.
