This Kiva borrower is a 41-year-old married woman from Lebanon. She lives with her husband and three young children. She has 15 years of experience in the tailoring field and started to manage her own work from her house in 2005. She cooperates with her husband in the family’s income to maintain a minimum fair average of profit to provide better living conditions for her family.
