A loan of $1,000 helped to increase her funds for buying flour and to pay for her husband's driver's license expenses.


Romanda's story

Romanda is a 38-year-old, married mother of two. For 25 years, she has been working to bake special, traditional Manakish (a folded dough, with several tasty toppings on it, such as cheese or thyme, served for breakfast mainly, but can be taken at anytime during the day). Thirteen years ago, this extensive experience helped Romanda to start to help her husband in improving their business and increasing their income.

Romanda is applying for a loan from Kiva partner, Al Majmoua Lebanese Association for Development, to increase her funds for buying flour and to pay for her husband's driver's license expenses. This license will help them buy and transport their business products and family needs in a less expensive way.

Romanda hopes to keep on expanding her business in a well-managed way and to open a larger bakery in the future.
