Hasmik is a 41-year-old married woman and mother of 2 dependent children. She has run a tailoring business, from her home, since 1998. She offers all sewing services in addition to clothes repairing services to her customers. She is known as a very active worker in her surrounding area.
Today, Hasmik is requesting to borrow $1,200 to buy new textiles and to have maintenance needed for the sewing machine to be able to deliver her services faster because of the reparation. She's certain that she will offer her services with greater speed and make new products as a result of the loan requested.
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.
