Najah is a 32-year-old married woman with three young children, living in Al Shwaifat in Mount Lebanon. She owns a used home electrical equipment shop in her village. Today, Najah wants to borrow $1,000 in order to buy inventory at a very good price, so that she can increase her income.
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.
