Lebanon
Tyre, Lebanon / Personal Housing Expenses

A loan of $3,000 helped to continue renovating and expanding her living place.


Somaya's story

Somaya is a 55-year-old married mother of three children. She is a Palestinian refugee who has worked hard as a tailor since 1980, supporting her husband, who has a small grocery store, in their living and providing their children with the necessary standards of living. Their combined income is barely enough to cover all the family’s expenses, which is why she also provides vocational training in a certain Palestinian institution to increase her income.

Somaya lives and works in a refugee camp, since most Palestinians are limited with certain working domains and sectors in Lebanon. That’s why they work hard to improve their living with what’s available. She has always been a determined person who wants to help and improve the family’s situation.

Somaya is already Al Majmoua borrower in good standing with a good payback history. Her house needs are very important to her, because she wants to keep it a healthy living place, so her previous loan was invested for her house’s renovation and maintenance. She is also acquiring this current loan from Kiva field partner Al Majmoua in order to continue renovating and expanding her living place.
