Nicolas is a 27-year-old Lebanese married man living with his wife and only one child. He’s the one responsible for his family and seeks to offer them a better future. He opened his own bakery in 2005, and looks forward to growing his business.
Today, he needs to borrow $1500 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase raw materials for his business - items such as oil, flour, soft drinks and more. This Kiva loan will facilitate his work and boost his productivity. In future, he plans to buy a van and deliver bread to the nearby villages.
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.
