This Kiva borrower is a 25-year-old single man from Lebanon. He lives with his family and, like the majority of Lebanese guys, he helps his family with his job income.
He has owned a barber shop in his town since 2005 and has ten years of experience in this occupation; he learned this occupation when he was very young.
Today, he is requesting to borrow $1,000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to improve the decor of his barbershop and to make some renovations to offer a comfortable place 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.
