Reine is a 29-year-old single woman living with her brother. She is from Lebanon. This woman started her business as a hairdresser and beautician from her home. She has been involved in this occupation for the past 10 years. She works independently. Her business is essential because with its income, she is able to help her brother pay their living expenses.
Today, she is requesting to borrow $1000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase beauty products in addition to new hairdressing equipment and supplies. In the future, she is planning to open her own beauty salon where she will provide her customers with top quality beauty services.
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.
