Sharifa is a 51-year-old married woman from Lebanon. She is living with her husband and one child.

In 1992, in order to supplement the family’s income, she decided to start her own work as a farmer. Her job consists of cultivating tobacco. She takes good care of her land and knows very well how to deal with the problems that occur.

As for her husband, he’s a taxi driver and the one covering the family expenses.

Today, she is asking to borrow a loan from Kiva partner Vitas s.a.l. to purchase the required agricultural tools and supplies, seeds and fertilizers. She states that the loan will certainly help her increase her business productivity by a fair percentage, which will return higher profits.

In the future, she plans to take more Kiva loans and expand her lands by cultivating a wider variety of fruits and vegetables.
