Souad is a 50-year-old Lebanese widowed woman living on her own. She has her own life and she works really hard to live properly and as it should be. Souad opened her own clothing shop in 2001 after many years of experience selling clothes from her home. She always seeks to satisfy her customers and offer them good quality products.
Souad is requesting a loan from the Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to change her shop’s interior decoration. She notes that this will gives her a good mood and allow her attract added clients. In the future, she plans to open other branches as soon as she can.
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.
