Abbas is a 35-year-old married man with two children living in Al Shwaifat in Mount Lebanon. He has been working as a van driver since 2007 where he services the surrounding areas. Today, Abbas wants to borrow $800 to repair and maintain his van.
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.
