This Kiva borrower is a 32-year-old single woman living with one parent and four siblings. She is from Lebanon. She has worked in the agriculture field for 10 years. In 2007, in cooperation with her father she bought her own land and started to produce vegetables and sell them in her town and surroundings.
Today, she is requesting to borrow $1,000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase required machinery and tools for her business to increase her productivity, sales and profits.
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.
