This Kiva borrower is a 41-year-old single woman from Lebanon. This talented woman is paralyzed and despite her situation, she opened accessories and gadgets shop in 2007 and she has proven to be a successful entrepreneur. She adds a tailoring service to her shop. This will be her third loan and she is very thankful for the results. She has been a reliable Ameen client and has repaid on time for the loan duration. She was even able to complete her last payment one month earlier than her scheduled date.
Today, she is requesting to borrow $1200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to increase her shop inventory of new accessories and gadgets. She is very optimistic about her business growth in the coming year.
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.
