Verdun 1 Group's story

Verdun 1 group is composed of three Filipino women, who came to Lebanon from the Philippines to work as housekeepers for covering their families needs. Lenida is the featured borrower of the group. She got along with the other group members to acquire a loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua because they have always been friends since they arrived in Lebanon. She is a 48-year-old widow, the mother of four children whom she sacrifices her whole life for their living and provides them with the necessary life needs. Lenida applied for loan which will be sent to her kids who live with her family in the Philippines for their school needs. She is the one standing in the middle. Elena is the one wearing white, Minerva is wearing blue.
