Lebanon - women entrepreneurs, workers and small business owners

Lebanon, 2015.

Portrait of clothing designer Lara Khoury in her studio in Beirut. Lebanon emerged from a 15-year civil war in 1990, beginning its slow but steady recovery. Today it is considered an upper-middle-income country, but economic gains are inequitably distributed among social groups and skewed towards urban areas.
