This Kiva borrower is a 31-year-old married man from Lebanon. In 2002 he opened his own grocery store but mainly sold gas tanks for houses. He is now requesting a loan of $1,500 to increase his purchases.
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.
