Samar is 25 years old and single. She lives with her parents and two working siblings. Her father is the one covering the family expenses. Samar has been working as a private teacher for the past four years from her home. She is intelligent and an expert in her field.
Samar is requesting a loan for $800 from Ameen s.a.l., which she will use to purchase a laptop for her business. She notes that this will allow her to develop her way of teaching through her communication with her students. In the future, she plans to attract new students and expand her work.
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.
