Mohamad is a 51-year-old married man and has 4 children. He alone takes care of his family's expenses: household expenses, hospitality, schooling expenses etc. So he works hard to provide better living conditions for his children. He has owned a mini-market in his town since 1998 and has 20 years of experience in this occupation.
Today, Mohamad is requesting to borrow US$ 1,100 to purchase additional inventory to fill his market with food products, dairy products, drinks, etc., to satisfy always the demand of his customers.
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.
