This Kiva borrower is a 31-year-old divorced woman from Lebanon. She lives with her parents and 3 siblings and contributes with her brothers to the household expenses. She started her business selling lingerie from her home. Today, she is the proud owner of a lingerie shop. She has been working hard in her store for the past four years. Today, she is requesting to borrow $1000 from Kiva's partner Ameen s.a.l. to further diversify her merchandise selection. She hopes that her varied selection of lingerie will continue to generate good profits and enable her to expand her business even further. She expects her productivity and income to increase in the coming year.
