The Kiva borrower is a 48-year-old married woman from Lebanon. A mother of two children, she started her own home business in 2007. She works as a private teacher specializing in learning languages. She has been involved in this occupation for 18 years and has been working in a language center in her town, but she has decided to work independently. She has taken advantage of a first loan and is very thankful for the results. Today, she is requesting to borrow a bigger amount of $2000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to prepare a small language center. She is planning to expand her business by employing different teachers, and she really needs this amount to realize her project.
