This Kiva borrower is a 36-year old married man living with his wife and two young children in Lebanon. In 2005, he started working in a clothing store and after two years he found that this profession was suitable for him. That’s why in 2007, he has established a small clothing shop in his town. He offers all the new collections of man's wear and he always tried to be up to date with this market to be in the requisition of his clients. And he's thankful for his decision to start his own business.
He is requesting to borrow $1,200 from Kiva partner, Ameen s.a.l. to expand his inventory for the summer season and propose a bigger choice of clothes to his 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.
