This Kiva borrower is a 20-year-old single woman from Lebanon. She lives with her parents and three siblings. She has owned a small beauty salon since 2006. Because of her good business reputation, she is able to have loyal customers who are very satisfied with her work. She has obtained her first Kiva loan and she was a very good client. She cooperates with her father in the family’s income.
Today, she is requesting to borrow $1,500 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to improve her business so she will be able to welcome her customers in a proper salon.
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.
