Bilal's story

BilA. is a Kiva borrower. He is a 27 year old married man from Lebanon who lives with his wife and their two young children. He has owned his own grocery store for the past year and is now asking to borrow $1,000 to buy a refrigerator and improve his store window to make it more attractive.

In his shop he sells candies, home cleaning products, dairy products, beverages, canned food, fruits and vegetables, and lots more. When BilA. opened his store a year ago, he had to face the competition in his region. He decided on opening his shop because he wanted to have independent work. His wife helps him in the store and sometimes she takes care of the store on her own when he has other commitments, so at least it’s a good compromise for both.

For the future, BilA. plans to keep on improving his store.
