This doesn’t mean that small businesses aren’t also struggling, especially vendors and tenants, and this Lebanese man is the perfect example.
A social media user posted pictures of the man with his merchandise laid out on the street in the background.
She wrote: “This uncle had a toy store. The owner required him to pay his rent in dollars, so he decided to move his stuff outside.”
She then called on people to buy from him and mentioned that he is selling the toys in Tyre, at the Hawch area, El-Nadi neighborhood.
It’s a shame that a Lebanese at this age is forced to stand all day outside during the summer heat just to make a living.
There are many dangerous problems in Lebanon that need urgent solutions, some recent like the dollar exchange rate, and some are as old as time, such as the lack of security for the Lebanese elders.
