This Kiva borrower is a 48-year-old married man living with his wife and five young children. He is from Lebanon. He has been working as a cloth tailor upon customer’s demands for 25 years and opened his own tailoring shop 20 years ago. His wife helps him from time to time, but he has to work hard day after day to provide better living conditions for his family. Today, he is requesting to borrow $1000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase textiles for his own use to start sewing different styles he designed. This allows him to develop his business and own a clothes store and that’s what he is hoping to.
