Hasan is a 24-year-old single man from Lebanon. He is living with one parent and three siblings. He has owned a curtain store in his town since 2009. He gained advantages from his first Kiva loan and was very satisfied with the results. Today, he is requesting to borrow $2000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase drapes of different shapes, designs, and sizes. In the future, he plans to open a new branch of his shop.
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.
