Al Taawoun Group's story

Nadira is the featured representative of the Al Taawoun group. She and the other group members are best friends, who came together to apply for a loan from Kiva’s field partner Al Majmoua. Nadira is a 45-year-old married mother of five whose husband works in construction. She is Palestinian, and since refugees are limited to certain work in sectors, she has faced many difficulties in life. She quit school at the intermediate level, which further limits her working opportunities. Despite these obstacles, two years ago Nadira started renting out apartments to help cover the costs of sending her children to a private school. Nadira is a devoted mother who acquired her second loan from Kiva’s field partner Al Majmoua in order to cover her daughter's wedding preparation fees. She hopes her financial situation will improve so that she can continue to provide her children with a better education.
