Omar is an 18 year old man living in Barja, Mount Lebanon. He has owned a mini-market since 2005, when his father taught him the business. Today, he wants to borrow $1,200 to increase his sales by purchasing a mini-van to be able to deliver to the surrounding villages.
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.
