Zahra is a 21-year-old single woman from Lebanon. She lives with her parents and two siblings. She is a fresh student seeking graduation. Because of her parent’s unsatisfactory revenue, she decided to start her career in 2010 working as a hostess in a local company in order to become the main one responsible for paying her educational fees. But since her income is barely sufficient, she is asking today to borrow $1200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to pay for her courses at the university. She is studying Accounting and this is her fourth year. In the future, she plans to take another Kiva loan to pursue her MBA.
