This Kiva borrower is a 37-year-old married woman from Lebanon. She is the mother of three school-age children. She has been working as a private nurse for the past 10 years. She has obtained a previous Kiva loan to purchase a car in order to facilitate her business movements. And she is thankful for the results. Today, she is requesting to borrow $1200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to pay for her children's school fees. She works hard with her husband to be able to raise her children and she needs the loan to add to her savings to pay the school costs. Her dreams include seeing her family get ahead.
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.
