Abdel Aziz is a 47-year-old married man and father of three children who still go to school. For the past 12 years he has owned a legal office in a court to finalize all the legal papers and documents. Over the years, thanks to his business income, Abdel has been able to meet his children's needs. Today, he is asking to borrow $700 to buy a new photocopier machine needed to continue his work properly.
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.
