Mirvat is a 26-year-old woman who lives with her husband. Five years ago, she started working with her friend in a beauty salon, and in 2007 she started working on her own from home.
Today, Mirvat is requesting a loan in the amount of $1,200. She wants to use the loan to purchase new utensils.
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.
