Hayssam is a 40 year old married man living in Ghobeiry, Mount Lebanon. He owns a men's clothing store that he started on his own in the beginning of 2009 after having 3 years of experience in the field. Today, Hayssam is requesting to borrow $1,000 to increase his inventory.
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.
