Lama is a 22-year-old Lebanese single woman. She works in her own business selling clothes. Her business was launched in 2011. Her shop is located in a busy area and she sells different types and styles of clothes designed for women. As we can see, Lama is still very young and as she states, she definitely needs to get financial support as soon as possible. That’s why she is requesting a youth loan from Kiva partner Vitas s.a.l. She declares that with the funds, she will increase her store’s inventory and diversify her merchandise selection to attract the maximum number of customers and earn a higher income to be able to live in better conditions.

This loan is helping support a borrower who is 30 or under.
