Racha is a 31-year-old married woman from Lebanon. She is living with her husband and three children who are still attending school. She has been selling clothes from her home since 2010. Her products are designed for both men and women.
Racha’s only goal is to support her family as much as she can. That’s why she wants to borrow a loan from Kiva partner Vitas s.a.l to increase her inventory by diversifying her merchandise selection with new trends and brands with the aim of earning higher income and consequently improving her family’s way of living.
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.
