A loan of $2,400 helped a member to send money to her children in the Philippines to cover their needs.


Easter Group's story

Easter is a group of five Filipino women who came to Lebanon to work as housekeepers because of the burden they suffered from in their hometown. Emelita is the featured borrower of Easter Group. Because they have been close friends since they arrived in Lebanon, she and her group members got together to apply for a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua.

Emelita is a 44-year-old divorced mother of two who works as a housekeeper to provide her beloved children with a healthy living and education. Her portion of the loan will be sent to her children in the Philippines to cover most of their increasing needs. Emelita is the first lady standing at the right. Antonia is the one wearing yellow, Donnalyn is in the middle, Florence is the second from the left, and Maricel is the first from the left.
