Ibrahim is a 46-year-old Lebanese married man living with his wife and three children, who attend school.
He has owned a store since 2007, where he sells mirrors and glass products. He has worked in this type of business for the past 22 years.
Today, and in order to increase his store’s inventory, Ibrahim wants to borrow a loan from Kiva partner Vitas s.a.l.
He notes that the loan will surely assist in increasing his business sales and consequently his profits.
Ibrahim is very ambitious and intends to work harder, so as to enhance the family’s way of living and help them meet their requirements.
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.
