Georges is a 28-year-old Lebanese single man living with two relatives. Regardless of his young age, Georges is doing the best he can to collect money and have his own family and children. For this reason, he decided to have his own business, so he opened a snack shop in his town in 2008. He’s a respectable person known for his good place and delicious food.

Today, he’s asking to borrow a youth loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase a freezer to be able to keep the food in good condition. In that way, he will gain people's trust and therefore, attract more customers. In the future, he plans to open his own restaurant.
