Colette has owned a beauty shop selling makeup and beauty products since 2002. She is a 42-year-old woman living with her parents. In order to develop her business and attract more clients, Colette is requesting a loan of $1,200 to purchase additional merchandise.
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.
