Claudia is a 29-year-old married woman from Lebanon. She is living with her husband and two school-aged children. In 2009, she started working as a private teacher receiving students at her home. She cooperates with her husband financially to be able to pay the heavy life expenses. Today, she is requesting to borrow $1,000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to prepare a special education room and equip it with the needed tools, tables, education wall etc. She is hoping to receive more students in the coming school season.
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.
