This Lebanese Kiva borrower is a 22-year-old single man from Lebanon. He lives with his parents and three siblings. He is a proud new business owner. He opened a vegetable and fruits shop in his town two years ago. This talented man planned to expand his business level so he decided to add a small grocery corner to increase his sales. And that’s how he will present two services to the clients in parallel. He has made some savings and he is requesting a loan of $1200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase merchandise to realize this target. In the future, he plans to diversify his business and open a grocery store to enlarge his business.
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.
