This Kiva borrower is a 23-year-old single woman from Lebanon. She lives with her parents and six siblings. In 2008, she opened a mini supermarket in her town. She helps her father, who works as a farmer, and her brothers in the household. Today, she wants to borrow $1000 from the Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. in order to increase her store’s inventory. She expects that her business will continue to grow in the coming year.

In Lebanon, small supermarkets selling perishable and non-perishable goods are found frequently. As members of the communities themselves, store owners have a deep understanding of local consumer needs and can offer products that meet local demands. The strong network of community relationships are an important component of life in Lebanon, especially in smaller towns and villages.
