This Kiva borrower is a 31-year-old single man living on his own. He is from Lebanon. After seeing the need for such a business in his town, this talented man decided to open a gym in 2000. He prepared the space with the necessary equipment to offer good body building services to the clients. Over the years, thanks to his business income, he was able to develop his business and make a good profit to cover the heavy expenses of food, housing etc. Today, he is requesting to borrow $600 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to equip his gym with a new desk and closet where he can process his administrative work properly.
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.
