This Kiva borrower is a 27-year-old single woman living with her parents and one sibling. She is from Lebanon. She has been working as a beauty specialist for the past five years. She works on a freelance basis and sometimes she receives customers at her house. She makes her product purchases from a local beauty center. With her business income she is able to help her parents pay the heavy life expenses.
Today, she is requesting to borrow $1200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase beauty products in order to improve her business. In the future, she is planning to open her own beauty 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.
