Samia is a 56-year-old married woman with two children living in Tyr, Southern Lebanon. She has been working as a private tutor since 1994. Today, Samia is requesting to borrow $800 to purchase a computer for teaching purposes.
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.
