Najla is a 38-year-old married woman from Lebanon living with her husband and six children, some of whom are still attending school.

She has spent two years selling clothing, and all is going well because of her friendly personality towards clients and the high quality products she offers at low prices. Today, she is seeking a loan from Kiva partner Vitas s.a.l to buy more merchandise for her business, such as pants, shirts, sandals, etc. This will allow her to offer a greater variety of products and thus improve her income.
