Ghassan is a 36-year-old married man with two children, living in Haret Horeik, Mount Lebanon. He has been a juice vendor since 2003, and he services the neighboring areas. Today, Ghassan is requesting to borrow US$ 800 to increase his inventory.
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.
