Khaled is a 49-year-old married man living with his wife and two children. He’s the one taking care of his family and looking to better support them.
Khaled has been selling perfumes since 2008. He works independently and is looking to further develop his work. In parallel, he has been working as a teacher in a local company for the past ten years. Today, he has the intention to borrow from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase more perfumes. He notes that this will increase his sales therefore his revenues. In the future, he plans to open his own perfumes 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.
