Mirvate is a 39-year-old single Lebanese woman. She lives on her own.
Mirvate works as a private teacher and has almost five years of experience. She likes her occupation and wishes to help her students get the necessary education. She has arranged a special room in her house where she teaches her students. Mirvate also works in parallel at a local company to supplement her income.
Today, Mirvate is looking for a loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to renovate the teaching room at her house and equip it with the needed tools and supplies. She notes that these changes will increase her probability of receiving additional students, which will therefore increase her income and thus improve her way of living. She might get married in the near future and have a family and children. This is one of her greatest dreams.
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.
