Rania is a 36-year-old divorced woman. After she divorced, she moved back to her parents' house and started working as a beautician from her home. She works as a hairdresser and also does manicures, pedicures and other beauty services. Her business allows her to help with the household expenses.
Today, Rania is requesting to borrow $1,000 to expand her home business by adding new services and purchasing more equipment. She wishes to increase her business productivity and income as a result of this loan and to attract new clients.
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.
