Nawal's story

Nawal, 54, is married and lives with her husband and four kids in an apartment in Beirut. Her husband is a retired Lebanese army officer and three of her children still go to school while her eldest son is an employee.

Ten years ago, Nawal opened a fruits and vegetables store in Beirut and became well known in the area over the years. For the first time, Nawal is asking for a 3,085,617 Lebanese pound loan from Kiva's partner, Ibdaa. She needs to buy additional fruits and vegetables for her store.

Nawal is an ambitious woman and needs to improve her business in order to increase her income and provide her family with better living conditions.

This loan is special because:

It doesn’t require a guarantor, reaching underserved women in Lebanon.
