This is Majida, a 37-year-old married woman from Lebanon. She lives with her husband and one school-aged child.
Majida cooperates with her husband to enhance their family’s financial situation. She strives to work really hard and doesn’t hesitate to offer help whenever needed. As for her husband, he works in diesel trading.
Majida has owned a grocery store in her town since 2008. She has clients from all over the neighbor villages who pass by her shop and purchase their needs of food and provisions. She has succeeded at work by being very welcoming and friendly.
Today she wants to borrow a loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to buy supplementary products for her business. She’s sure that with the diversification of products, her sales will increase by at least 20%. This is how Majida works every day to better develop her business.
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.
