Silia is a 21-year-old single woman. She lives with her parents and two siblings, one of them is working. Her father is the one responsible for satisfying his family's needs.

Silia has been working at a local company since 2010. She’s brave and is capable of improving herself. Silia is looking to continue her education, so she asks today for a youth loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to pay the rest of her university fees. This will allow her to carry on her studies in a proper way. In the future, she plans to take more Kiva loans and pursue her Master’s degree.
