Hussain is a 30-year-old married man, living in A. Shwaifat in Mount Lebanon. He has owned a barbershop for the past year, after working for 10 years in the field. Today, he wants to borrow US$ 1,000 to buy a new vapor machine for the hair and skin to satisfy his clients' needs.
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.
