This Kiva borrower is a 25-year-old married woman with one child. After her first child was born, she decided to help her husband with the household and baby expenses, so she started working as a private teacher in her home. To receive the students, she has prepared a special education room.
Today, she is requesting a loan of $500 from the Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to perform modifications needed for the room. She needs to add more tables, a bigger wall and education tools in order to be able to receive more students with the coming school season.
Due to political and social challenges in Lebanon, personally identifiable attributes entrepreneurs may have been altered to protect their privacy (i.e., blurring portions of the borrower's picture, not indicating a name and location, etc.). Vitas appreciates Kiva lenders' understanding of these challenges and encourages them to continue their support for Lebanon's borrowers.
