Omar has been working as a farmer for the past 12 years. He is a married man, 51 years old, and has three children. He owns land and cultivates it with a variety of fruits and vegetables according to the season. His children help in the household and they cooperate as a family to better their living conditions.
Today, Omar is asking for a loan of $1,000 to buy seeds and fertilizers for the summer cultivation.
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.
