Rima is a 28-year-old married woman with two children. She has been working as a tailor since 1999 to earn additional income for her family. Today, Rima is asking to borrow $1,200 to buy tools and textiles to make a variety of products. She wants to become well known to attract clients.
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.
