Fatmeh is a 24-year-old, Lebanese, married woman, living with her husband and only child.

With great effort, Fatmeh started a business, which consists of selling clothes from her home. She has spent almost six years in this type of business and it is going well, thanks to her being always friendly to her customers and always offering them high-quality products, at low prices.

Today, Fatmeh is eager to buy more clothes for her business, such as pants, coats, and jackets. She is certain that applying for a youth loan from Kiva partner, Vitas. s.a.l., will be a great help. Consequently, she will be able to improve her income and, therefore, her family’s standard of living.
