A loan of $1,200 helped a member to pay her children's school fees.


Karam Group's story

Ernalyn is the featured borrower of Karam's group. She and the other two group members are partnering to acquire a loan from Kiva's partner, Al Majmoua, because they have been friends since they came to work in Lebanon as housekeepers. They came to Lebanon to earn money to provide their families with the best education and a better living.

Ernalyn misses her hometown in the Philippines, but she insists on working hard to support her family. Her loan from Al Majmoua will be sent to her children to pay for their school fees.
