Hajer is a married woman and the mother of three unemployed children. In 2007, she decided to start selling clothes from her home after seeing a need for such services in the region. Over the years, she became well known in the whole region. That's how she and her husband are able to raise the three children.
Today, Hajer is asking to borrow $1,200 to buy additional clothes in order to offer the new collections for the summer season. In the future Hajer plans to expand her business more and more by opening a clothes shop.
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.
