Fidaa is a 42 years old, married, and has six children who attend school. She has been working as a tailor from her home for the past 11 years. She is stylish and fashionable and seeks to please her customers as much as she can.

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.
