Manale is a 31-year-old married woman with two children living in Jeb Jenine in Bekaa Valley. She has been working as a food vendor from her house since 2008.
Today, Manale wants to borrow $1,000 to buy new materials to increase her sales.
Due to political and social challenges in Lebanon, personally identifiable attributes entrepreneurs may have been altered to protect their privacy (i.e., blurring portions of the borrower's picture, not indicating a name and location, etc.). Vitas appreciates Kiva lenders' understanding of these challenges and encourages them to continue their support for Lebanon's borrowers.
