This Kiva borrower is a 46-year-old single woman from Lebanon. She lives on her own. She has owned a small grocery store since 2005. She sells all types of food products, dairy products, juices, soft drinks etc. Today, she is requesting to borrow $1,000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to increase her store’s inventory. She expects that with the coming years, her income will be increased, which will allow her to live in better conditions. It is very common in Lebanon to find small supermarkets selling perishable and non-perishable goods. As members of the communities themselves, storeowners have a deep understanding of local consumer needs and can offer products that meet local demands.
