Naziha is a respected and exceptionally hardworking 61-year-old married woman. She lives with her husband, and both work to achieve a good standard of living. Her home-based business provides her customers with chic and stylish hairdressing services. Naziha wishes to borrow from Kiva partner Vitas s.a.l to renew her business tools and modernize them. This would help to enhance her services and satisfy her clients. Naziha is very optimistic and this will be her first Kiva loan.
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.
