This Kiva borrower is a 23-year-old single man who lives with his parents. He is from Lebanon. Despite his young age, he has been making pastries for over eight years and he opened his own pastry shop in 2006. His freshly prepared goods are enjoyed by members of his village and neighboring towns. He helps his father to meet the family's expenses.

Today, he is requesting a loan of $1000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase additional merchandise that he needs, such as flour, sugar, and oil, so he is prepared for the coming holidays. He also wants to increase his productivity and further develop his shop. He is planning to continue expanding his business and he is positive about the coming year.

His bakery is an important source of income for his family. Lebanon has many pastry shop and bakeries and it is easy to buy fresh goods in one’s village or neighborhood.
