Walid is a 46-year-old married man living with his wife and two children. He has owned a food market named "Lord" since 1998 with which he services the neighboring areas. Today, Walid is requesting to borrow $1,200 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.
