Alice is a 40-year-old single woman. She lives with her mother and she is the only provider for her after the death of her father. She has owned an accessories and perfumes shop in her town since 1988. During this long period, she has gained a large number of clients passing by her shop.
Today, Alice is requesting to borrow $1,000 to buy more merchandise to meet her clients’ demands and offer all the new items for them.
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.
