Imad is a 48-year-old Lebanese married man who lives with his wife and seven children. Two of his children are working and the others are still studying. They are all cooperating together to be able to enrich their way of living.
In 2005, Imad decided to open his own silver items and home accessories shop. He sells original products at fair prices, which makes his customers loyal to him. Today he wants to borrow a loan from Kiva partner, Ameen s.a.l., to buy added silver items and home accessories for his shop. He is sure that buying these new items will help him earn superior income. In the future, he plans to open a home accessories 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.
