Victor is a 29-year-old single man living with one parent and one sibling. He has owned a barbershop in his village since 2006 and has 12 years of experience working in the same occupation. Like the majority of the Lebanese guys, he helps his family with his business income. With his requested loan of $1500 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l, he will be able to purchase new chairs and additionA. shaving tools. He is very optimistic and hopes that the loan will positively impact 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.
