This Kiva borrower is a 42-year-old Lebanese married man. He lives with his wife and four school-aged children. He has owned a small grocery store since 2010. With his business income, he is able to satisfy the high expenses of the family in collaboration with his wife who works in a bakery.

Today, he is requesting to borrow $1000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to increase his store’s inventory. In the future, he expects that his business will continue to grow. It is very common in Lebanon to find small supermarkets selling perishable and non-perishable goods. As members of the communities themselves, store owners have a deep understanding of local consumer needs and can offer products that meet local demands. The strong network of community relationships are an important component of life in Lebanon, especially in smaller towns and villages.
