Over the years, thanks to his business income, he has been able to meet his children's needs. Today, Haidar is asking to borrow $1,000 to buy new painting tools and supplies needed to meet the requirements of his clients and make a good income for his family.
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.
