This Kiva borrower is a 34-year-old married woman from Lebanon. She lives with her husband and four small children. In order to help her husband with the family expenses, in 2006 she started working as a home-based tailor. She is requesting to borrow $2,000 from Kiva's partner, Ameen s.a.l., to improve and expand the business.
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.
