Nawale is a 47-year-old Lebanese single woman. She is living on her own.
Nawale has been working as a private teacher since 2010. She likes her profession because she feels that she is helping learners to get the needed education. She started teaching from home until she decided to apply for a loan from Kiva partner Vitas s.a.l. to arrange a special teaching room and equip it with the needed supplies.
Nawale notes that these purchases will facilitate her work preparation, allowing her to expand her research and studies. She is very optimistic about her future and wishes to receive more students with the coming school season.
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.
