This Kiva borrower is a 20-year-old single woman from Lebanon. She is living with her parents and four siblings. She has been working in the agricultural field since 2008. She grows a wide variety of vegetables using large plastic tents. These tents allow her to grow more types of products throughout the year. She is well established in her business and has a wide range of tools and equipment to help with her work.
Today, she is requesting to borrow $1200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. for the purchase and installation of a plastic tent. She estimates that with the coming harvest, her profits will be increased.
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.
