Georgette is a 56-year-old married woman with 1 child. She has been working as a home-base tailor since 1990. Over the years, thanks to her business income, she has been able to meet her family needs. Today, Georgette is requesting to borrow $800 to purchase a new sewing machine instead of the old one to satisfy the demand of her clienteles.
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.
