Mohamad is a 60-year-old married man and father of three children. He has owned a mini-market for the past 20 years. Over the years, thanks to his business income, he has been able to meet his children's needs. A good number of the village clients pass by his shop and buy all types of products.
Today, Mohamad is requesting a loan of $1,000 to purchase additional merchandise needed to satisfy the needs of his customers and make a profit.
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.
