Fatmeh is a 50-year-old married woman who lives with her husband and seven children, all of whom are attending school.
As mentioned, Fatmeh has a big family, so she works very hard, as with her husband who works in two jobs, to be able to pay their heavy life expenses. She has been involved in the tailoring business for 15 years. She has a gifted performance and always satisfies her customer’s demands.
With her loan requested from Kiva's partner Vitas s.a.l, Fatmeh will expand her operations by purchasing new tailoring machines and tools. Fatmeh is a positive person who always seeks the best for her family.
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.
