This Kiva borrower is a 32-year old married woman from Lebanon. She lives with her husband and three small children. She has owned her own women's clothing and lingerie store for the past ten years, to help her husband with the family expenses. She is requesting $1,000 from Kiva's partner, Ameen s.a.l., to purchase merchandise for her store.
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.
