A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase seeds and fertilizers.


Hasab's story

Hasab is a 58-year-old Lebanese widow who lives with her three children. After the loss of her husband, Hasab had to double her efforts as she became the main breadwinner of the family. Therefore, for the last 18 years she has been involved in the agricultural field, specializing in cultivating fruits. Today, she is requesting to borrow $1,000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase seeds and fertilizers. She will also use the loan to pay for seasonal employees who help her with the hard slog since she is older now and cannot do the work single-handedly. Hasab estimates that the loan will help her increase her profits by 12 per cent.
