This Kiva borrower is a 35-year old man from Lebanon, living with his wife and two young children who still attend school. In 2002, he opened his own clothing store to attend to the needs of the area.
He is now requesting to borrow $1,200 in order to increase the store's inventory.
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.
