Omar is 45 years old and married with ten children. He has been working as a fisherman since 1989. Over the years, he has been able to meet his children's needs thanks to his business income. Today, Omar is requesting to borrow $1,000 to buy special tools for his job.
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.
