This is Insaf, 50, a resident of Lebanon and married to Mikhael. They have one child who is in school. For the past eight years Mikhael has worked very hard at a local company. Both he and Insaf are working together to improve their financial situation and live as life should be.

In order to help him, Insaf decided in 1993 to start her own business as an accountant after gaining years of experience in the field. She has attracted a large customer base that has allowed her to expand her business further and increase her income.

Today Insaf is requesting a 3,000,000 LBP loan from Kiva’s partner Ameen s.a.l. to buy a car she needs to visit clients and companies for which she works. She is considering opening an office in the future and hiring staff to serve her growing clientele.
