Israa is a 20-year-old Lebanese married woman who lives with her husband and one child. Her husband works for the Lebanese army to support the family money-wise. But since his income is not enough to cover the family's expenses, Israa decided to start working as a hairdresser, receiving customers at her house. She’s a brave young woman who is running a business while at the same time raising her child and taking care of her house.

With her requested youth loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l, she will purchase new hairdressing tools and supplies so as to better serve her clients. She hopes her business will grow and dreams to be able to give her child a good future and high educational degree through all her hard work.

More information about this loan

This loan is helping support a borrower who is 30 or under. Because many young people lack business experience or established credit histories, it can be even more difficult for them to access financial services. By funding this youth loan, you are expanding opportunity for a young person with limited resources. 

Important Information

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.
