Hanaa is a 58-year-old Lebanese widow, with one working child. In 2000, she started her own home business, and she works nonstop. Hanaa decorates chocolate for all events. Her job is independent, based upon customers' requests. She would like to take out a loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase added decoration products in order to carry out her work properly. In the future, she plans to have her own chocolate shop.
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.
