A loan of $1,900 helped a member to pay for her child's school fees.


Marybon Group's story

Nomo is the featured borrower of the Marybon group; she came together with the other group members to acquire a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua, because they have always been best friends since they left their home country, the Philippines, to work as housekeepers in Lebanon to improve their beloved families' living conditions.

Nomo is a 37-year-old widowed mother of one child, she works hard as a housekeeper to provide her beloved child with the necessary living needs. This is Nomo's second cycle as a borrower with Al Majmoua, Kiva's field partner. Her previous loan was sent to the Philippines to pay for her child's school fees.

Today, Nomo's acquired loan will be invested for the same purpose, because she believes that education will provide her child with a brighter future.
