A loan of $1,500 helped a member to cover her children's education expenses.


Cool Girls Group's story

Marilyn is the featured borrower of the Cool Girls' Group. She got together with the other group members to apply for a loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua because they have always been neighbors and friends since they came to Lebanon to work hard for their family's living.

Marilyn is the one in the middle. She is a 49-year-old divorced woman and mother of three children that she takes care of. She works hard to send them money to cover their living and education expenses. She works as a housekeeper and she misses her family a lot. Marilyn is looking forward to the day she can unite with her family forever. The loan will be sent to her children back in the Philippines to cover their education expenses.

Josephine is the one on the right. She is a 49-year-old married woman and mother of two children. She works as a housekeeper to provide her children with the best education ever.

Judyirene is a 51-year-old married woman and mother of two children. She works as a housekeeper in order to send money to her family in the Philippines for living and education needs. Her requested loan will be invested for the same purpose as additional help.
