This Kiva borrower is a 48-year-old single woman from Lebanon. She lives with her brother. She has 20 years of experience working as a farmer. She has been running her own farm since 2000. She cultivates all type of fruits according to the season. After the death of her parents, she started to cooperate with her brother to handle the heavy life expenses. This will be her second Kiva loan.
Today, she is requesting to borrow $1200 from Kiva's partner, Ameen s.a.l., to purchase supplies needed for her agriculturA. work. She estimates that with the coming harvest, her profits will be increased.
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.
