This Kiva borrower is a 28 year old single woman living with her parents in Lebanon. She established a mini-market in her town in 2009, after having had previous experience in this occupation for 5 years. She helps her family through her business income, in collaboration with her brother. She offers food products, cereals, detergents, etc. Her mini-market is situated in a busy area, so there are a lot of customers who pass by her shop. Today, she is requesting to borrow $1200 to increase her shop's inventory. She is certain that with the help of the loan, her business productivity will be increased.
