Wassim is a 27-year-old single man living with his family. He has had a men's clothing shop since 2007 and has eight years of experience in this occupation. He profited from his first Kiva loan and he's thankful for its results. He has been very reliable with his repayments to Ameen and has repaid on time the entire loan.
Today, Wassim is asking for a new loan of 1,200 USD to purchase more merchandise for his business, specifically to increase his selection of new collections and to offer a bigger choice of clothes to his clients for the summer season. And he's certain that with the new loan, his business productivity and his income will increase.
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.
