This Kiva borrower is a 51-year-old Lebanese married woman living with her husband and five children. She owns a small shop where she sells all types of grains (rice, chickpeas, beans, etc.) and peppers. Her husband works in a locA. school as a student transporter. They cooperate together to better satisfy the family's financiA. needs.
She has obtained a first Kiva loan and has a very good repayment history. Today, she is requesting to borrow $1500 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to increase her shop inventory. In the future, she intends to enlarge her business by selling dairy and other daily necessities.
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.
