Labibeh is a 44-year-old single woman living with her family. She has been working as a private accountant for the past fifteen years, working from her home. She participates with her family in the household expenses, rent, etc.
Labibeh has repaid her first loan and, today, she is asking for her second loan of $1,600 to purchase two computers. These are needed to facilitate her work after having a heavy demand from customers asking for her accounting services.
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.
