This Kiva borrower is a 20-year-old single man from Lebanon. He is living with his parents and two siblings who are still attending school. He has owned a snack since 2008. He specializes in preparing delicious beef and chicken sandwiches. He has a large number of customers visiting his shop enjoying his tasty sandwiches. He works hard in cooperation with his father to afford the high costs of living. Today, he is requesting to borrow $1200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase additional tools and equipments to improve his business. In the future, he is planning to redecorate his shop in order to attract more customers.
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.
