Samah is a 21-year-old single woman living with her father and four siblings. Her father owns agricultural land and she used to accompany him for the past five years when he worked on it.
And in 2008, Samah took the opportunity to help her father with the cultivation after he became old. She cultivates vegetables and she distributes the harvest to the agricultural markets. She’s a very hardworking woman.
Today, Samah is requesting $1,200 to buy farming supplies like seeds and fertilizer in addition to some tents to use when packaging the produce.

Vitas appreciates Kiva lenders' understanding of these challenges and encourages them to continue their support for Lebanon's borrowers.
