Mohamad is a 52-year-old married man with two children. He has owned a clothing shop for the past 20 years. He’s well known in the whole region because his shop has been there a long time. With his business income, he's able to raise his children.
Today, Mohamad is requesting to borrow $1,000 to buy new clothes and fill his shop with new collections to meet the demands of his clients.
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.
