Al Rawad Group's story

Lama is the featured borrower of Al Rawad Group. She got together with the other group members to acquire a loan from Kiva's field partner, Al Majmoua Lebanese Association for Development, because they have always been neighbors and friends.

They all work hard to support their beloved families with an additional income, so their acquired loan is a very important step forward towards making their dreams come true.

Lama is a 24-year-old, married mother of one child, who has been working in the beauty business for 11 years. She was very young when she started working, but she had to support her family in covering their needs. This long experience provided her with special talents and customers' trust and support.

Today, Lama is acquiring a loan from Kiva's field partner, Al Majmoua Lebanese Association for Development, to expand her working sector by increasing her business merchandise with special summer beauty products and cosmetics.
