This Kiva borrower is a 28-year old man living in Lebanon. He lives with father and brother, who both work to help each other with the home expenses. He has worked as a barber for the past 10 years, but after working in this industry for 4 years he decided to open up his own barber shop. He is requesting a $1,200 loan from Kiva's partner, Ameen s.a.l., to improve the shop.
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.
