This Kiva borrower is a 29-year-old married man with a baby. He lives in Lebanon. He has owned a bird shop since 2000 and he has been working in this occupation for the past 15 years. He is really satisfied with his work because he likes birds with their different types and colors and he says that it brings joy to his heart. And he also says that it brings a good atmosphere to the houses where they will have a good place. Today, he is asking for a loan of $1000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase additional birds to increase his sales and make a good income. In the future, he is planning to expand his business and enlarge his shop into other areas.
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.
