A loan helped to purchase prepaid telephone cards for resale.


Anonymous's story

This Kiva borrower is a 26-year-old married woman from Lebanon. A mother of two young children, she has established a mobile phone shop in addition to selling computer accessories and games.

She has been involved in this occupation since 2005. As is common among Lebanese women, she helps her husband with the family expenses. Today, she is requesting to borrow $1000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to increase her merchandise selection and to purchase prepaid telephone cards from a wholesaler at a good price. The majority of mobile phone users in Lebanon purchase these prepaid cards -- it is less common to have an annual phone contract.

In the future, she is looking to further expand her business and increase her capital.
