This Kiva borrower is a 31-year-old Lebanese married man. He is living with his wife and two school-age children. He has owned a barber shop since 2008.

In parallel, during the school year, he works as a driver transporting students from their houses to school and vice versa. He works hard in both jobs to be able to cover the heavy life expenses. Today, he is requesting to borrow $1,200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase added products needed for his barber shop.
