A loan of $1,000 helped to help her son to continue building his new house.


Zakieh's story

Zakieh is a 52-year-old widow and a mother of four children. She lives with her family in a marginalized Palestinian camp in southern Lebanon, just like almost all of the Palestinian refugees with limited working opportunities.

For 15 years, Zakieh has worked as a housekeeper for a Lebanese family, to take care of her children and raise them properly. One of her children is also working. However, their combined income is in no way sufficient to provide for a family of six members. Zakieh's other children are enrolled in public school, so that they could be provided with a good education, a privilege Zakieh did not have the opportunity to acquire since she is illiterate.

She decided to acquire a loan from Al Majmoua Lebanese Association for Development because she needs the money in order to help her son to continue building his new house. As for the future, she wishes to expand her business.
