Henry is a 30-year-old Lebanese single man living with his parents and two siblings. He started his career working as a female hairdresser. And in 2010, after 10 years of experience, he opened his own female beauty salon. He provides his customers with top quality services and knows how to make women feel comfortable in his salon. Today, he is requesting to borrow $1,200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to renovate his shop and make new decorations to attract more customers. In the future, Henry looks forward to further improving his business by adding new types of services.
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.
