Faqra Group's story

Jovita is the featured borrower of Faqra group. She joined with the other members of the group to acquire a loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua. The borrowers have been friends since they came to Lebanon from their hometowns in the Philippines, to work as housekeepers for the sake of developing their families’ lives and needs.

Jovita is a 40-year-old married woman and a mother of three children. Her husband is not employed, that's why she had to work hard in order to cover her family's needs. Her portion of the loan will be invested in covering her children living and educational expenses in the Philippines, because most of the housekeepers don't get their salary on monthly basis, but rather they get the money they have earned when they leave for home.

That's why her loan will be sent to her children.
