Aziz is a 27-year-old Lebanese single man living with his parents. He has owned a sportswear shop since 2004. He sells sportswear and wide range of related equipment and accessories.
With his requested loan of $1300 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l, Aziz will be able to purchase warmth suits, equipment, and many other products. He states that the ski season is about to begin and he must be ready to satisfy his customer’s demands. He estimates that the loan will help him increase his business profits by 10%.
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.
