Imane has worked as a home-based hairdresser for the past 15 years. She receives clients at her home, where she has prepared a special room for this purpose and she is well known in her area. She has 2 kids and she cooperates with her husband in the household and in raising her children. Today, Imane is requesting a loan of $1,200 to improve the decor of her salon and buy specially designed barber chairs that will be more comfortable for the 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.
