Nelly Group's story

Iman is the featured borrower of Nelly Group. She got with her other group members to acquire a loan from Kiva's partner, Al Majmoua Lebanese Association for Development, because they have always been neighbors and friends.

Iman is a 52-year-old, married woman, who has been working in sewing and preparing hand-made souvenirs to help her husband in making their living and covering their two children's expenses.

Her acquired loan will be invested in buying a special, updated sewing machine that will make part of her work easier and faster. In the photo, she is on the right, with a veil covering part of her face.

As for the other members, Nada is a 50-year-old, married mother of three children. She works as a tailor and her applied for loan will be invested in covering some unexpected, urgent family needs. She is the one standing in the center of the picture.

And Rana is a 44-year-old, widowed mother of two. She works as a tailor too. Her applied for loan will be invested in paying her deceased husband's financial dues. She is the one wearing black, at the left.
