A loan of $1,000 helped to pay for her son's university fees.

Sabah's story

Sabah is a 52-year-old married woman and a mother of one child. She has been preparing the delicious, traditional Lebanese Breakfast Mankousheh (dough with several different toppings such as thyme, cheese or meat served folded) for twenty years. Eight years ago she started her own business to improve her family’s living conditions.

Her son is her life; she is sacrificing her whole life for his education and responding to his needs. She is applying for a loan from Kiva’s partner, Al Majmoua, in order to pay for his university fees.

Sabah is well-known in her region due to the special taste of her products (they are baked over a burning wood-oven). Her Mankousheh is highly requested by customers and recommended to other to try.

She hopes to keep on developing her business in a good way and responding to her customers' needs.
