This Kiva borrower is a 21-year old single man from Lebanon, living with his parents and three young siblings. In 2008, he started selling chocolates and candies in his area. He found it a good business and started covering several other areas. He is now requesting a loan of $1,000 in order to increase his merchandise and introduce new products.
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.
