Al-Waseem 14183 Group's story

Al Wassim is a group composed of four Lebanese women living in a small village in Mount Lebanon. They decided to join hands and form the group in order to acquire a group loan together from Al Majmoua.

Sawsan is the leader and featured member of the group. She is a 34-year-old married mother of two children, wearing red in the picture. She owns a small beauty business, where she does makeup for a living. Her husband works as a blacksmith. Their combined revenue is not sufficient to provide a better life for their children, especially since their children are both enrolled in a private school. The highest education Sawsan ever acquired was intermediate, which means that she wants the best alternative for her children. She needs the Al Majmoua loan in order to settle tuition fees, and purchase merchandise and products for her business.

Hiyam is a 40-year-old married mother of three children, wearing brown in the picture. She owns a small business where she assembles flowers and sells them. Her husband is an employee in the army. Her three kids are enrolled in private schools, which means that she has to settle the tuition expenses on top of the other expenses. She needs the Al Majmoua loan in order to pay off the next tuition fees, and to buy a work kit.

Rabab is a 32-year-old married mother of two children, standing on the far left of the picture. For a living, she works in handmade beads and piece work. Her husband is an employee in the ministry of tourism. Both her children are enrolled in private schools. She needed the Al Majmoua loan in order to settle tuition fees expenses and to purchase materials for her handmade work.

Nagham is a 28-year-old single lady, standing on the far right of the picture. She is employed in a company that employs housekeepers. She decided to join the group and acquire a loan because she needs to prepare for her engagement ceremony, which is taking place soon.

In this group: Rabab, Sawsan, Hiyam, Nagham
