This Kiva borrower is a 28-year-old married woman living in Lebanon with her husband and 3 children. In addition to her husband’s income, she represents a second income source for the family. She opened a clothing store in 2008 and she hopes to extend her business especially that she built up a good reputation and has her loyal customers.
Today, she is requesting to borrow $1000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase new, much-needed products since she wants to offer her clients new styles and designs to attract a maximum number of customers.
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.
