Mazen is a 35-year-old single man. He has been working as a tailor since 2002 and has 15 years of experience in this field. Today, Mazen is asking to borrow $1,200 to buy an additional sewing machine to be able to make more products because his business has developed remarkably and he needs to meet the requirements of his clients and to make a good income.
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.
