A loan of $3,000 helped to increase his inventory of shoes.


Abbas's story

Abbas is a 28-year-old Lebanese man. He’s single, living with his parents and one relative. Despite his young age, life’s difficulties obliged him to work under pressure to be able to cover the heavy costs of life. He opened his own shoe and bag shop for women in 2008, and has gained a fair number of clients so far. Today, he’s asking for a loan of $3,000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to increase his inventory of shoes. He notes that as much as he diversifies his products, his returns will be just as high. In the future, he plans to start selling men's and children's shoes.
