This Kiva borrower is a 35-year-old married woman from Lebanon. She lives with her husband and five young children who are still attending school.
She has owned a toy shop since 2007. She sells wide range of toys such as dolls, model cars, etc. Her products are designed for both genders. She has obtained her first Kiva loan and has been a very good client with payments on time.
Today, she is requesting a loan of $1200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to increase her store's inventory of new toys. In the future, she hopes to further expand her merchandise selection to be able to better satisfy her customer's demands.
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.
