Khalil is a 21-year-old single man living with his parents. In 2004, he decided to open his own barber shop in his village to begin a new career. After five years in the business he has decided to expand his business by purchasing merchandise for his shop and that is why he is requesting to borrow $1,000.
Due to political and social challenges in Lebanon, personally identifiable attributes of this entrepreneur 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.
