A loan of $1,000 helped to buy supplies for a tailoring business.

Watfa's story

Watfa is a 51-year-old Lebanese woman who is married and lives with her husband and two working children. She’s friendly and very hardworking, and earns a living as a tailor. She is very talented at her job and has a lot of experience in this field. She’s well known in her town and works from her home so that she can meet customer demand in a short period of time. Her husband, who owns a factory, is their main breadwinner, but Watfa brings added earnings to the family. With this loan from Kiva Partner Ameen s.a.l., she will buy supplies such as textiles, needles, thread and many other items. Her goal is to open her own tailoring factory as soon as possible, so that she can enhance her family’s way of living.
