Darling 1 Group's story

Haidee is the featured borrower of Darling 1 Group. She got together with the other group members to acquire a loan from Kiva partner, Al Majmoua Lebanese Association for Development, because they have always been friends since they left their hometown in the Philippines to work as housekeepers or to start their own business in Lebanon, to cover their families' increasing living expenses. Haidee is a 38-year-old, married mother of two children. She works selling clothes and mobile phones to provide her family with the necessary living needs. Her acquired loan will be invested in buying a new spring and summer clothes collection, in addition to mobile phones requested by her customers. She hopes that, one day, she will develop her business and start her own in the Philippines and stay next to her children. Haidee is the woman on the right side of the picture. As for the other members, Cristine is the woman at the center of the picture, with the Mickey Mouse top, and Olivia is on the left.
