Santan Group's story

Roselia is the featured borrower of the Santan group. She got together with the other group members to acquire a loan from Kiva's partner, Al Majmoua, because they have always been close friends since they left their home towns in the Philippines to work in Lebanon. Most of the groups members work as housekeepers to support their beloved families properly.

Roselia is a 47-year-old married mother of four children. She sells clothes, which is a good income business, and she works hard to develop it as much as she can to make sure that the clothes fit her customers' needs and satisfy their desires. Roselia's loan will be invested in increasing her business merchandise with special winter and newly-released spring collections, which she will get at special competitive prices that will help her in increasing her business capital and attracting more customers.
