This Kiva borrower is a 53-year-old married woman living with her husband and one child. She is from Lebanon. She sells a wide range of goods from her home to customers from her community. She has been working hard to support her family in cooperation with her husband who works in his own garage. Her goods are enjoyed by members of her community. She sells different Lebanese food and products.
Today she is requesting to borrow $1000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase a new oven and additional tools needed for her cooking work. In the future, she would like to rent out a space to sell her merchandise, as well as sell popular home-made food products.
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.
