This Kiva borrower is a 25-year-old single man from Lebanon. He is living with his parents and two siblings. In 2009, he opened a store where he started to sell a wide range of car accessories such as air fresheners, stickers, steering wheel covers etc.
This young man was able to ably demonstrate his sales talents which allowed him to gain a good number of clients. He helps his father to meet the family's needs.
Today, he is requesting to borrow $1200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase additional merchandise. He is certain that the loan will help him increase his business sales which will return on him with higher profits. In the future, he is willing to open a new branch of his shop.
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.
