Nouhad is a 28-year-old married man living with his wife. In 2001, he decided to open his own barber shop in his village to begin a new career. After 13 years in the business, he has decided to expand his business by purchasing merchandise for his shop; that is why he is requesting to borrow US$ 800.
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.
