Nazih is a 42-year-old single man. He has been working for the past thirteen years in refining water and in 2005, he took action and opened his own station for refining water after seeing a need for such services in his region.
Today, Nazih is asking to borrow $1,200 to buy a refrigerator and plastic bottles in which to market the water.
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.
