A loan of $1,500 helped to pay the necessary legal documents expenses for her son's legal residency in Lebanon.


Fatima's story

Fatima is a 47-year-old married mother of five children. She has been working in the Mouneh business (traditional way of conserving nonseasonal food) since nineteen years ago to support her husband in covering their family's increasing needs. Fatima is requesting a loan from Kiva's partner, Al Majmoua, to pay the necessary legal document expenses for her son's legal residency in Lebanon. She is married to a non-Lebanese man, and in Lebanon, the mother can't provide her husband or children the Lebanese Nationality. Most of the NGOs in Lebanon are currently fighting for this issue, since it is one of the necessary women rights. She hopes that one day her children can live freely as Lebanese. She is also working on manufacturing soaps from Olive oil in addition to her current conserving business, and hopes to expand it widely through opening her own selling shop in the future.
