Lina is a 37-year-old single woman from Lebanon. She is living with her parents and only sibling. She has owned a small café next to her town for the past 7 years. She provides customers with Internet services and sells coffee and quick snacks.
Today, Lina is asking to borrow a loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to increase her inventory of food provisions needed such as coffee, chocolates, chips, etc. She has high hopes for the future of her business and always behaves with a positive attitude.
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.
