A loan of $2,500 helped to pay for her son's university fees.


Mouna's story

Mouna is a 49-year-old, married Palestinian woman, mother of six children, for whom she sacrifices her life to help her husband in replying to their needs.

In 2001, Mouna opened a book and stationery shop. She sells all types of school stationery, like pens, pencils, papers; she also has a printer, newspapers, books, and much more. She notes that when she first started, she faced some challenges in securing sufficient financing for her business. She decided on doing her business because she wanted to improve her family's financial situation and she thought that it was needed in her region.

Today, Mouna has requested a loan from Kiva partner, Al Majmoua. She plans to pay for her son's university fees in Cyprus. She is so happy that she is capable of providing her children with the best education ever. She hopes they will have a brighter future since their lives in Lebanon have no chance to expand because all the Palestinian refugees have limited access to some businesses.

This will be Mouna's third cycle as an Al Majmoua borrower. She has a good-standing history of paying back loans. Her previous loans helped a lot in expanding her business and improving her family's social living. She hopes to further expand and enhance her business in the future.
