Hiba is a Kiva borrower from Lebanon. She is a 44-year-old married woman who has six children. She has been running a grocery store since 1994. These stores are found in every neighborhood and village in Lebanon.

When she first opened her store, she realized that it was a good location where she can attracts lots of clientele. Usually, her clients are her friends, neighbors and tourists.

Hiba is requesting a loan of $2,000 from Kiva partner, Al Majmoua, which she plans to use to increase her store’s inventory. This is her third loan from Al Majmoua. Her previous loans allowed her to continually improve her sales and increase her stock.
