Monzer is a 28-year-old married man. He's owned a phone sales shop in his town since 2007. His wife helps him manage the household with her work income. He buys all models of mobile phones in addition to buying rechargeable cards. This couple is like the majority of Lebanese couples – they work hard and they collaborate to have a good life and to raise a family.
Today, Monzer is asking to borrow $1,200 to buy additional rechargeable cards and the latest collections of mobile phones to increase his sales during the summer season. His region is known for its tourist trade and he needs to be ready.
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.
