Imane is a 35-year-old Lebanese married woman. She lives with her husband and two children.
She has worked as a private teacher since 2008. She loves her profession and always gives the best education she can. She visits her customers at their places since she would not be able to receive this number of people in her house. As for her husband, he works in repairing electrical generators. They both cooperate together, seeking a new and better way of living.
Today Imane is applying for a loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase a car for her business. She will be using the car to facilitate her transportation and reach her students on time. She is very optimistic about her future and wishes to receive more students with the coming school season so as to boost her income.
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.
