Nizar is a 53-year-old Lebanese married man who lives with his wife and one child who is still studying. He’s the one taking care of his family and he is looking to enhance their way of living. Nizar has owned a natural herbs factory since 2010, where he produces and sells natural products to the neighboring areas. Today, he needs to borrow a loan from Kiva Partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase the needed quantity of herbs and oils in order to carry on his work in a proper way. In that way, he will be able to boost his productivity and earn superior income. In the future, he plans to open his own natural products 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.
