She repairs clothes and she tailors clothing and wedding robes, etc. Today, Wissam is asking to borrow $1,200 to buy merchandise such as textiles, threads, needles, etc. in order to meet the requirements of her 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.
