This Kiva borrower is a 43-year old married woman from Lebanon. She is living with her husband and four little children. One year ago, she opened her own grocery store to help her husband with the family expenses. She is now requesting to borrow $1,000 to expand and improve the 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.
