This Kiva borrower is a 39-year-old married woman from Lebanon. She lives with her husband and two school-aged children. Six years ago, she started a tailoring business out of her home. She is specialized in sewing beads on textiles. As with the majority of Lebanese wives, her story illustrates the day-to-day challenges in running a business to help her husband with the household expenses.

Today, she is requesting to borrow $700 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase textiles and beads in order to expand her business operation and earn more profit. This will be her first Kiva loan.
