Abbas is a 28-year-old single man who lives with his parents. He has owned a barber shop since 2004. He is requesting to borrow for the second time a loan of $1,200 to add new decor to his shop in order to attract new clients.
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.
