This Kiva borrower is a 35-year-old Lebanese married woman living with her husband and one young child. She has 14 years of experience working as a farmer. She has been running her own farm since 2000. She uses plastic tents to grow her produce. These tents allow her to better monitor product quality as well as grow her products for more months during the year.

She works independently in her business, and she distributes vegetables and fruits she harvests to local markets. She helps her husband who works as a construction worker to satisfy the family needs.

Today, she is requesting to borrow $1500 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase needed supplies for her work in addition to buying extra agricultural tents. She hopes that the loan will help her increase her profits by 15%. This will be her second Kiva loan.
