Imane is a 33-year-old Lebanese married woman. She lives with her husband and four children who are still studying.
Even though her husband is working, she decided to have her own business, wishing to support him as much as she can. For this reason, she decided to have her own freelance job in 2008. She has been working in providing legal documentation services and has many customers visiting her to smooth their official documents preparation.
Today, she’s looking to take a loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to buy a car for her business. This Kiva loan will facilitate her transportation thus her punctuality in delivering the documents to her clients. In the near future, Imane wishes to open her own office and receive clients whenever she wants to.
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.
