More information about this loan

This loan is designed for rural women in Lebanon. Loan amounts are much smaller than average, and the goal is to support businesses that enable women to work from their homes or further develop their small businesses. By supporting this loan, you are empowering women in a country where gender roles and norms often make it difficult for women in rural areas to run a business. 

Important Information

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.
