Layale is a 32-year-old Lebanese married woman. She lives with her husband and three children. She is working hard and trying her best to be as helpful as she can in her family.
She opened a beauty salon in her house in 2005. She has her loyal customers, and is glad with the results she has attained so far.
Today, she is looking to borrow a loan from Kiva partner Vitas s.a.l. to purchase new equipment for the beauty salon. In that way, she will be able to serve her customers with good-quality products.
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.
