Ramziya's story

Ramziya is a 33-year-old, married mother of two children. For ten years, she has been working in the business of selling accessories, bags, and cosmetics. Ramziya is a hard-working woman, who puts so much effort to help her husband in making their living and developing their socioeconomic situation. Both her children are enrolled in public school because her income, combined with her husband’s, aren’t enough to cover private schools' tuition fees, in addition to the family’s needs. Ramziya is applying for a loan from Kiva’s partner, Al Majmoua Lebanese Association for Development, to help her husband in developing his business by paying for necessary maintenance on his business-based machines, he owns a bobcat and a forklift, and they are his business based tools so they have to be in a good situation to keep on providing them with a good income. She is sure that this loan will help her develop her family’s socioeconomic situation, since her husband will be capable of developing his business upon his customers’ needs and requests.
