Aliyah is a 52-year-old widowed woman living with her children in Lebanon. In 1997, she opened a mini-market in her town. With her requested loan of $1500 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l., she will be able to increase her store’s inventory of food products and provisions. It is very common in Lebanon to find small supermarkets selling perishable and non-perishable goods. As members of the communities themselves, store owners have a deep understanding of local consumer needs and can offer products that meet local demands. In the future, and because of her older age, Aliyah plans to concede her business to her children.
