Faten has worked as a home-based tailor since 2000. A mother of 2 children, she started her small business to help her husband with the family's income. She is asking to borrow $1,000 to buy a new sewing machine and tailoring supplies to make more products for her clients and make a good profit.
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.
