Ronak's Group's story

Ronak is a member of this group from Iraq. Ronak is 53 years old, married and has two children. She is a primary school teacher with 27 years of experience in this job. Ronak has a smart 23-year-old son named Sherko. He always get high grades in school.

The family lived in Baghdad, but as a result of the violence, bombing and death there, the family ran away to the north and became IDP's and lost everything including dropping out of school to pay for their basic needs. Ronak felt terrible because she knew that her son's education is his weapon to have a decent chance of a better future but at the same time her salary and additional expenses as a result of becoming an IDP were not enough to pay for her son’s education. The family faced a problem of making ends meet at the beginning of the school year for the additional expenses that are needed to cover the children's fees, school uniforms and books. With this loan now they can accommodate all these expenses. Sherko's vision is to complete his college education and work to help his IDP family. The story of Sherko is just one of the many examples of Izdiharona for economic development clients that are able to get a better education.

Both of the borrowers in this group are taking the loan to pay for their son's education. They prefer to have their face altered for cultural reasons.
