Samer is a 27-year-old married man with one child, living in Al Maghayreh, Mount Lebanon. He has owned his own supermarket since 2004. Today, he is requesting to borrow US$ 500 to purchase a new refrigerator for the supermarket to better serve his clients.
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.
