Georges is a 30-year-old Lebanese engaged man. He lives with his parents and two working siblings. His father is the main source of income and he really cares for their future. Since Georges wishes to get married and, at the same time, help his father with the expenses, he decided to start his own business. He opened his own discotheque in 2009. He diversifies his items in order to please his clients. He also attends some events where he plays a musical instrument. This will be an added source of income for him and his family. Today he intends to take a youth loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase music CD’s and DVD’s in order to increase the number of products and therefore earn a higher income. In the future, he plans to open a small cinema in his town where he can receive customers from his town and the surroundings.
