This Kiva borrower is a 37-year-old single woman living with her parents and 3 siblings. She is from Lebanon. She contributes, together with her father and brothers, to meeting the family income goal. She worked in a clothing shop for more than 5 years and in 2008 she opened her own clothing store. She purchases her products from a local clothing center.
Today, she is requesting to borrow $1200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to buy clothes in various designs and models so she can offer her clients a wide choice which will expand her profitability.
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.
