This Kiva borrower is a 26-year-old single man from Lebanon. He lives with his parents. After getting his university degree in pharmacy, he opened his own pharmacy in 2008, seeing a need for such services in the region. He's very happy with his business because he's able to help customers improve their health situation. He has one full-time employee helping him with the work.
He obtained his first Kiva loan and has been an excellent client with punctual repayments. Today, he is requesting to borrow $2000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to redecorate his pharmacy and add more space into it. In the future, he expects additional growth in his business.
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.
