This is Jahida, a 39-year-old Lebanese woman. She’s married, living with her husband and five school-aged children. She’s cooperating with her husband who has been working at a local company since 2010. As for her, she started her own home business as a tailor in 2004. She’s stylish, fashionable, and seeks to please her customers as much as she can. Today, she’s looking to borrow a loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase a new tailoring machine in order to improve her business and increase her productivity. Jahida has big responsibilities to care for and this is the perfect time to develop her work and augment her earnings. She’s planning to open her own tailoring shop and also expand her business outside the country as soon as she can.
