Watfa is a 52-year-old Lebanese married woman living with her husband and three children. After gaining 20 years of experience working as a tailor, she decided in 2000 to start her own work from her home. She is a talented tailor producing stunning and attractive designs. Today, she is requesting to borrow a loan from Kiva partner Vitas s.a.l to purchase textiles to extend her production and therefore earn superior income.
