Dolly is a 38-year-old woman living in Kfarshima in Mount Lebanon. She has been working in handicrafts since 2003. Today, Dolly is requesting to borrow $1,000 to purchase inventory in order to increase her production.
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.
