Ramy is a 22-year-old single man from Lebanon. He is living with his parents and only sibling. Since he was very young, he was obsessed with everything related to music, so he got involved in this field six years ago and he finally opened his own store. His job consists in selling CD’s and organizing music for weddings, social events, etc. In parallel, he works in a local university to earn more income.
Today, Ramy is requesting to borrow $500 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l, to enlarge his business operation by purchasing additional musical instruments etc. He is very positive and hopes to apply for more Kiva loans in the future.
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.
