Ali is a 23-year-old single man. In 2006, he decided to open a new business; that is when he came up with the idea of a barbershop, which he then called "Ali's Salon". Today, Ali is requesting to borrow $1,200 to buy new chairs for his salon to be able to attract a wider range of clientele and improve his business.
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.
