This Kiva borrower is a 38-year-old married man from Lebanon. He lives with his wife and two children who are still attending school. He started running his own business back in 2006. His job consists in selling a large variety of car accessories. His wife who works in a local school assists him in paying the household expenses.
Today, he is requesting to borrow $1200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to increase his store’s inventory. He hopes that these purchases will continue to generate good profits and enable him to expand his business even further.
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.
