Souad is a 49 year-old Lebanese married woman living with her husband and two children. One of them is working and the other attends school.
She has owned a bakery since 2009 and her husband has sold car parts for the past twelve years. Today, she needs to borrow a loan from kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase products for her bakery such as sugar, flour.
She notes that this will boost her productivity and her profits. In the future, she plans to enlarge her bakery and diversify her products.
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.
