Hussein is a 40-year-old married man with three children. For the past 30 years, he has been working as a fisherman. Over the years, thanks to his business income, he has been able to meet his children's needs. Today, Hussein is asking to borrow $1,000 to buy new tools for his work.
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.
