Kabayan Group's story

Larida is the featured borrower of Kabayan Group. She got along with the other group members to apply for a loan from Kiva's partner, Al Majmoua, because they are friends and consider themselves as one family, since they left the Philippines and came to Lebanon for the same reason, which is providing their families back there a good standard of living.

Larida is the third one from the right wearing purple. She is a 53-year-old divorced mother of six children who works as a housekeeper to provide them with a good standard of living and the best education.

At the same time, she is a physiotherapist, and she does this as an additional income-making business. Her acquired loan will be sent to her children to pay for their university fees and needs. She is still hoping that one day, she will open a special physiotherapy center and improve her family's social and financial living.

As for the other group members, Daisy is the one with the yellow shirt, Juanita is the one with the green shirt, Gemma is wearing an orange shirt, Nelly wearing a black shirt and Leticia is wearing a white shirt.

In this group: Larida, Leticia, Gemma, Juanita, Nelly, Daisy
