Leila is a 30-year-old Lebanese single woman. She lives with her parents and three working siblings in addition to seven relatives. Her siblings are working really hard to cover their heavy costs especially because they are a big family. As for her, she has been working as a tailor for the past fifteen years to help her relative with his education. For this reason, she has the intention today to take a youth loan of $1,600 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to pay the education fees of her relative until he graduates. In the future, she plans to develop her work and provide more support for her siblings.

More information about this loan

This loan is helping support a borrower who is 30 or under. Because many young people lack business experience or established credit histories, it can be even more difficult for them to access financial services. By funding this youth loan, you are expanding opportunity for a young person with limited resources. 

Important Information

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.
