Mirna is a married mother of three, born in 1986, and she has a secondary level of education. As her husband’s salary was limited, she decided to work side by side with him to increase their income and cover their children's needs and expenses.
For the last 9 years, Mirna has been working hard from her house sewing shoes. Due to high living expenses she is suffering from low finances. Thus, she is requesting a loan from Kiva’s field partner Al Majmoua to pay her children's school fees.
This loan will help Mirna keep her children at school and guarantee their future. She hopes that one day she can open her own shoe sewing business.
