Mona is a 50-year-old married woman from Lebanon. She is living with her husband, three children and a grandson. In 1990, in order to supplement the family’s income, she decided to start her own work as a farmer. Her job consists of cultivating vegetables, which she sells to customers from her town. And when she has orders from the neighboring villages, she sends the harvestings with her husband who transports them with his pick-up. Today, she is asking to borrow a loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to prepare the lands for a new season. She will diversify her harvesting and no doubt, she will need a big quantity of seeds and fertilizers. She states that the loan will certainly help her increase her business productivity by a large percentage, which will return to her higher profits. In the future, she plans to open a vegetable shop and start selling her own harvested goods.
