Gagay Group's story

Modesta is the featured representative of the Gagay group. She and the other group members are best friends who left their home country, the Philippines, to search for better work opportunities in Lebanon. They are very devoted to each other, which is why they got together to acquire a loan from Kiva’s field partner Al Majmoua.

Modesta is a 56-year-old married mother of four. She struggled to provide for her children back home, so she decided to move abroad to increase her income, through working as a housekeeper. She misses her children a lot and hopes to join them again one day. She is acquiring a loan from Kiva's field partner Al Majmoua in order to send some money to her family to pay for her children's school tuition fees. Modesta is the second lady standing on the far left side, Gemma is the first from the left, Imelda is the second from the right with the red top and Darlina is the first on the right.
