A loan of $1,500 helped to expand her business by purchasing a new espresso machine and other goods (e.g., coffee and glasses).


Sanaa's story

Sanaa is a 40-year-old, married Lebanese woman. She lives with her husband and their four children. Three of her children are in school.

Sanaa seeks to manage her family’s affairs and to cover her children’s education fees with the cooperation of her husband. Her husband has been working in the construction field for many years.

She started to work very hard to be able to afford her family's living expenses. Indeed, in 2009, Sanaa opened a coffee shop in her town. She explains that she has loyal customers, who always meet at her place to have fun and to enjoy each other's company.

With the requested loan proceeds from Kiva Partner Vitas s.a.l, she would like to purchase a new espresso machine and other products and materials, such as coffee and glasses. In this way, Sanaa believes that the loan will enable her to attract new customers and to boost revenues. One of her greatest dreams is to save enough money to provide her children with anything that they need.
