Khoder is a 47-year-old married Lebanese man. He lives with his wife and two children, one of whom is working. He is the one responsible for his family and seeking to offer them a better future. Khoder has owned a library in addition to a mini-market for the past three years. Today, he is requesting a loan from Kiva Partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase some books for his library and groceries for his mini-market. This will definitely increase his revenues and his earnings. In the future, he plans to open his own supermarket.
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.
