This Kiva borrower is a 34-year-old divorced woman from Lebanon. She is living with her parents and two siblings. She has been running a clothing store since 2006. She sells women and children's clothes. She has a good number of clients passing by her shop because she always presents the newest collection. Her business income is vital for her family. She is supportive of her parents. Today, she is requesting to borrow $2000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to expand her store’s inventory with the new summer collection. In the future, she is hoping to add woman shoes to sell from her store.
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.
