This Kiva borrower is a 23-year-old single woman from Lebanon. This young woman lives alone to attend the university because her family home is far from her college.
Despite her young age, she has proven to be a successful entrepreneur as a radio program director. She started this type of business in 2008 and she works on a freelance basis.
Today, she is requesting to borrow $1000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase a laptop to be able to do the needed preparations for her occupation from her home instead of staying late at the radio station. This way, she will also be able to deliver her service faster. In the future, she hopes to continue in this type of occupation and develop her career, and she dreams of having her own radio program.
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.
