A loan of $1,200 helped to pay for her courses at the university.

Anonymous's story

This Kiva borrower is a 19-year-old single woman from Lebanon. She lives with her parents. This young woman works as an assistant in a doctor clinic. Her work is very important because with its income, she is able to satisfy her life needs and help her parents pay for her university fees. As with the majority of Lebanese students, her story illustrates the day-to-day challenges involved in working while at the same time pursuing an education.

Today, she is requesting to borrow $1,200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to pay for her courses at the university. She is studying biochemistry and this is her first year. In the future, she is planning to start her career in a laboratory to gain experience and be able to help her parents with her income.
