She offers all types of sewing services. She makes all kind of clothes as well as doing repairs. All her clients say that she is very hardworking and active in her work. She has a lot of experience in this occupation and her business is well kept.

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.
