Falak has worked as a home-based hairdresser since 2005. She is 21 years old and living with her parents and 4 brothers and sisters. They cooperate together to provide a good living situation for the family. Today, Falak is asking to borrow $1,200 to purchase cosmetics products and hair accessories in order to enlarge her business and be able to satisfy the needs of her clientele.
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.
