Dania is a 32-year-old Lebanese divorced woman living with her parents. Her father is the one responsible for covering his family expenses. As for Dania, she has owned a beauty salon since 2009. She works with a high professionalism with the intention to offer the best she can for her clients.
Today, she’s asking to take out a loan from Kiva Partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase added beauty products in addition to a slimming device for her salon. She notes that this will boost her business and allow her to attract new customers. In the future, she plans to enlarge her shop and earn superior 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.
