Silvana is a 32-year-old Lebanese married woman living with her husband and four children, who are still attending school.

She has been running a successful bakery since 2000. She produces tasty Lebanese breads and pastries.

This will be her third Kiva loan. It is encouraging to learn that she has indeed increased her productivity and income since taking the previous loans. And she was a very punctual client.

Today, to continue expansion of her business, Silvana is requesting to borrow $2,000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to increase her purchases of items such as flour and foods used in baking. Her income is very important to help support her husband and four children.
