This Kiva borrower is a 44-year-old divorced woman from Lebanon. She lives on her own. She worked in a clothing store for more than four years and in 2008 started to work as a clothing seller from her house. She works hard day after day to be able to face the increasing costs of food, housing, and other personal expenses.
Today, she is requesting to borrow $1000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to improve her business and purchase more products. In the future, she is hoping to expand her business operation and open her own clothing store.
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.
