This Kiva borrower is a 25-year-old single man from Lebanon. He lives with his parents. He has owned a photocopy and printing shop since 2002. He became involved in this field at a very young age to help his family with the income.
Today he is requesting to borrow $1200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase an electric generator for his shop in order to meet his customer’s demands to visit him anytime so that he can increase his sales and then his profits.
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.
