Fayza's story

Fayza is a 61-year-old Lebanese married woman, living with her husband and only child. She has owned a mini market since 2011. She sells dairy and daily products such as canned food, juices, bread, sweets etc. She works very hard to support her family financially, especially considering that she is the one and only income source of the family. With her requested loan from Kiva partner Vitas s.a.l, she will increase her store’s inventory of food provisions and drinks. She is confident that when diversifying goods, more customers will be attracted, and therefore higher income will be earned.
