Hasan is 23 years old, single and lives with his parents and one sibling. His father works for the local municipality while Husan earns a living selling car accessories in a shop he opened in 2007. He also works on the side as a barber in a salon he owns. He is applying for a loan for $1,100 from Kiva partner Ameen to buy more car accessories to sell to his customers. He believes that this loan will allow him to improve his business and increase his profits. His goal for the future is to expand his car accessories 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.
