Sereana Group's story

Tania is the featured borrower of Sereana’s Group. She got together with her group members to acquire a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua because they have always been neighbors and friends.

Tania is a 20-year-old single lady who is employed in a roastery (a place where nuts and coffee are sold roasted) since two years ago. Tania is her family's sole breadwinner; she is responsible for the living of five members of her family, in addition to covering her own needs. Thus, she has to put in extra effort to cover the unexpected and increasing family needs.

For this reason, Tania is acquiring a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua to start a new business to make sure that she can develop and improve her family’s living with this extra income. Her acquired loan will be invested in opening a special occasions planning shop, where she will start with birthdays at the beginning since she adores children and loves to draw a smile on every child’s face, but she hopes to widen and expand her dream in the future to be a wedding planner too.

Tania is the first one at the right side of the picture with the orange top. As for the other group members, Maya is at the center of the picture wearing a white shirt and Norma is the first lady from the left wearing a black top.
