Hajar is a 23-year-old married woman from Lebanon living with her husband and only child. She has worked as a secretary at a local company since 2008. Her income plus her husband’s is barely sufficient to cover the heavy life expenses. That’s why Hajar is asking today to borrow a youth loan from Kiva partner Vitas s.a.l, to get extra financial support. The loan will be fully used to register her daughter at the school. Hajar only aims to provide her child with a good education and only wishes to keep away from having school problems. In the future, she plans to start to work in another job in her free time with the intention of gaining a higher income and enhancing the family’s way of living.

Due to political and social challenges in Lebanon, personally identifiable attributes entrepreneurs may have been altered to protect their privacy (i.e., blurring portions of the borrower's picture, not indicating a name and location, etc.). Vitas appreciates Kiva lenders' understanding of these challenges and encourages them to continue their support for Lebanon's borrowers.
