Mahmoud is a 34-year-old single man living with his two parents. In 2008, he opened an internet café and an amusement center where he receives the village guys who come to have a nice time in his shop. He opened this kind of business after seeing a need for such services in the region. And his plan was good, because his new business has a good demand from his clients.
Today, Mahmoud is asking to borrow $1,000 to ameliorate his business level and bring new games to attract more clients.
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.
