This Kiva borrower is a 21-year-old single man living with his parents. Despite his young age, he is a proud new business owner; he has opened a car spare parts and car electricity shop. He currently owns his business and started it in 2009. He is working hard to build a good business reputation due to his short business period.
Today, he is requesting to borrow $1200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to increase his inventory of spare parts and add more needed tools. He hopes to open a bigger store to sell spare parts in the future. He told us that he would like one day to open a commerciA. center.
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.
