AbdelHady is a 40-year-old married man living with his two children who are still in school. In 2001, AbdelHady decided to open his own roastery, currently named "A. Esaily Roastery," which was a good addition to the surrounding villages. Today, AbdelHady is requesting to borrow $1,000 to purchase merchandise.
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.
