Sabah is a 51-year-old married woman with three children, living in Old Saida, southern Lebanon. She owns a small shop, where she sells cloth and gadgets to people in the surrounding neighborhoods. Sabah wants to buy cloth for a very good price, in order to increase her profit, therefore she is asking to borrow US$ 1,200.
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.
