This Kiva borrower is a 48-year-old widowed woman from Lebanon. She lives with her two young children. She started her own business out of her home in 2008. She is specialized in producing paper bags. Despite her age, she must work hard each day to satisfy her family needs. She obtained her first Kiva loan and she was a reliable client with punctual payments.

Today, she is requesting to borrow $1400 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase a bag stapler so that she can proceed with her business operation faster. In the future, she hopes to further expand her business and continue her work properly to earn superior income for her family.
