Zeinab is a 20-year-old Lebanese single woman. She lives with her parents and two siblings. She works as a private teacher and has almost two years of experience. She likes her occupation and wishes to help learners get their needed education. She has arranged a special room in her house where she receives her students.

To be able to supplement her income, she’s asking today for a youth loan from Kiva partner, Vitas s.a.l., to purchase added books and thus enrich her education. She notes that these changes will increase her probability of receiving added students, which would increase her income and 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.
