Salma's story

Salma is a 49-year-old married woman from Lebanon. She is living with her husband and only child. In 1993, in order to supplement the family’s income, she decided to start her own work as a farmer. Her job consists of cultivating vegetables. In addition, she produces a wide variety of homemade food, which she sells to customers from her town and neighboring villages. Her husband, who works as an employee in a local school, provides the main source of income for the family.

Today, Salma is asking to borrow a loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase required agricultural tools, supplies, seeds, and fertilizers. She states that the loan will certainly help her increase her business productivity by a large percentage, which will help her earn higher profits. In the future, she plans to open a vegetable shop and start selling her own harvested goods.
