This Kiva borrower is a 22-year-old single man from Lebanon. He lives with his parents and two siblings. He has owned a small grocery store since 2009. He sells all types of food products, juices, soft drinks, breads etc. His shop is situated in a busy area so there are a good number of customers passing by. He helps his father with the household expenses.
Today, he is requesting to borrow $1200 US from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to increase his store’s inventory. He expects that his business will continue to grow with the coming years.
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.
