A loan of $5,600 helped to purchase school books, backpacks and school supplies.

Zahia's story

Although Zahia, a 56-year-old mother of eight from Kfar Manda, only studied through the 8th grade, her favorite pasttime is reading. After her husband was forced to take an early retirement, she decided to finally realize her dream and opened a neighborhood library and bookstore called Alhohma, which means 'wisdom.' She sells books and stationary supplies and has a special library section for borrowing books.

Zahia is now expanding her stock and has requested this loan to purchase a stock of school books, backpacks and school supplies. She wants to strengthen her business so she can further help children who cannot afford school books and create a donation program.
