The Kiva borrower is a 43-year-old married man from Lebanon. He lives with his wife, who stays at home and takes care of their child. He has owned shoe shop in his town for the past 15 years. He sells women's and childre's shoes, in addition to selling women's bags. His work is an important source of income for his family.

His shop is located in a busy area so he was able to gain a good number of clients during this period. Today, he is requesting to borrow $1000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to expand his store’s inventory especially with kids’ shoes for the winter season where the students returns to school and the families buy new shoes for their kids. It is the right time to take advantage of that and earn extra profit. In the future, he hopes to open a men's shoe shop in order to expand his business.
