Rima is a 39-year-old divorced woman. She has owned a clothing shop since 2001 in order to earn a good income and cooperate with her father in the household because she is living with her parents after her divorce.
Today, Rima is requesting to borrow $1,200 to buy more clothes before the holiday season to increase her business productivity.
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.
