This Kiva borrower is a 27-year-old single man from Lebanon. He lives with his parents and cooperates with his brother who works as a baker to cover the expenses of the family. He is also paying his young brother's school fees. He has been running a clothing store since 2004.
He opened his shop after getting the needed experience in this field almost 10 years ago. Today, he is requesting to borrow $1000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase new clothes for his shop to better serve his customers' needs. He always tries to offer new collections in his shop to attract clients and increase his sales.
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.
