Houda is a 53-year-old widow woman and mother of 3 children. After the pass of her husband, she decided to help her children in the household by working as a baker producing special Lebanese bread in her town. Today, Houda is requesting to borrow $1,200 to purchase tools to satisfy the needs of her clients after being known by the neighboring villages.
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.
