Reneh, 54 years old, is a married woman and resident of Lebanon. With her husband and three adorable children, she decided to carry on her life despite some difficult circumstances. At this time, she’s cooperating with her husband and expecting a shiny future for their children. Reneh decided to start her own business in 1995. She’s specialized in knitting handmade table covers. Her husband is a carpenter working at a local company. She wants to better develop her business and improve her work as well. She decided to take a loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase added yarn and other knitting supplies that can speed up her work and make it much easier. This Kiva loan will also allow her to offer a greater quality of products and thus improve her income by minimum of 20 percent. This is how she works every day to make her greatest dream a reality and expand her profession.
