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 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.
