Ahmad is a 33-year-old Lebanese married man living with his wife and two children, who are both attending school.
He has owned a barbershop since 1999. He is a friendly person and welcomes customers cheerfully. This is how he is able to let his customers become loyal to him because of his extraordinary reception.
Today, Ahmad is requesting to borrow a loan from Kiva partner Vitas s.a.l. to renovate and redecorate his shop. Unfortunately, his shop was moderately damaged by fire and he is in urgent need to complete the renovation to receive customers and be able able to serve them appropriately.
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.
