Mariam is a 43-year-old, Lebanese single woman. She works as a saleswoman at a clothing store and she earns barely enough income. Mariam is very tender and cares a lot about all of her family members.
Today, she is eager to borrow a loan from Kiva partner, Vitas. s.a.l., to pay her nephew’s educational fees. She tends to help her brother to raise his children well and to provide them with a good education.
This is Mariam's first Kiva loan and she wants to express her thanks for it.
Due to political and social challenges in Lebanon, personally identifiable attributes of this entrepreneur 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.
