A loan of $2,500 helped to repair a ceiling leak and pay for car registration.

Rasmiya's story

Rasmiya is a 32-year-old married mother of four children. She is a Palestinian refugee who has been working for 17 years in the embroidery business. Just like most of the Palestinian refugees who live in a Palestinian camp, she had to find a suitable job that will help her support her family's needs.

Rasmiya is very talented in her business, and highly recommended in her region. She is acquiring a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua, to make necessary maintenance to her house. The ceiling is leaking and she would like to repair it before the coming winter season to keep it a healthy living place for her precious family. She would also like to help her husband to pay for his car registration fees which is very important for facilitating his business.

Rasmiya hopes to keep on supporting her family in their needs, especially covering her children's education, and wishes that one day she'll be capable of spreading her work outside the camp.
