Kiova is a 27-year-old married woman from Lebanon living with her husband. In order to help with the family expenses, she decided to start working as a private teacher.
She has been involved in this occupation since 2008, and she gives lessons at student's houses. Today, she is asking to borrow $1200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to perform the needed maintenance on her car so that she can make her transportation easier and safer. In the future, she is planning to get a job in a proper school and make her work a stable source of income.
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.
