Abla’s story

Abla is a 36-year-old Lebanese married woman who lives with her husband and two children in a rural area. She cooperates with her husband to fulfill the family’s daily needs. Her husband owns a small mechanic shop in his town where he repairs cars. As for her, she opened in 2011 a clothes shop near her house to balance between her family needs and her work.

However their incomes are barely sufficient, due to the low situation in the country and the fact that they are living in a very non-populated area where the incomes are very low.

Today she is requesting to borrow a loan from Kiva partner Vitas s.a.l. to purchase a new collection of clothes and meet her clients’ demands. She said that this loan will surely help her to increase her number of customers therefore her income will increase. She states that she is always eager to borrow more loans in the future to enhance her work and help her husband financially. 

This loan is special because:

It empowers women in a country where most businesses are owned or run by men.

More about this loan

This loan is designed for women in Lebanon. Loan amounts are much smaller than average, and the goal is to support businesses that enable women to work from their homes or further develop their small businesses. There are also fewer eligibility requirements for this product, as part of Vitas’ effort to reach more undeserved women in Lebanon. By supporting this loan, you are empowering women in a country where gender roles and norms often make it difficult for women in rural areas to run a business.

About Vitas. s.a.l.:

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.
