Hanane is a 32-year-old Lebanese married woman who lives with her husband and two school-aged children. She collaborates with her husband to enrich their life and to live as it should be. Her husband has been working a local company for seventeen years. As for her, she has been working in selling traditional clothes from her home since 2006. She also sells shoes and bags.
Today, she wants to borrow a loan from Kiva Partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase a big quantity of traditional clothes as well as shoes in order to boost her sales and therefore increase her profits. In the future, she plans to open her own traditional clothing shop.
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.
