This Kiva borrower is a 49-year-old married woman and has three children of whom one is still attending school. She is from Lebanon. She established a tailoring business out of her home in 1980. She produces different types of clothes, pants, shirts, robes etc. and she distributes them to some locA. traders.
In addition, she makes clothes to suit the requests of the clients. Today, she is requesting to borrow $700 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase tailoring supplies and textiles and to perform maintenance on her sewing machine. These modifications will help her deliver her services faster. In the future, she is planning to open a small tailoring factory. Her services are valued by customers in some of Lebanon’s suburban towns.
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.
