Amira is a 48-year-old married woman and mother of 3 children. She has been working as a farmer for the past 14 years. The region she lives in is specific to this agricultural sector, that's why she learned this occupation when she has still very young. She cultivates all kind of vegetables and distributes the harvest to the vegetable shops she works with. Today, Amira is requesting to borrow US$ 1,000 to buy farming tools and seedlings to increase her business productivity and thus her income.
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.
