This Kiva borrower is a 44-year-old single woman from Lebanon. She works as a beautician who has developed her business in her home. She works independently on her business and she lives on her own. She has been involved in this business for almost 20 years. She offers different types of beauty services to her clients such as make up, manicure, pedicure etc. With her requested loan of $1,200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l., she will invest in purchasing new beauty supplies. She said that with the help of the loan, she will expand her work operation significantly and increase her overall profit. She is able to serve a wide range of clients from her home.
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.
