Nabih is a 54-year-old Lebanese married man living with his wife and one school aged child. Hie is the main source of income for the family and works really hard to offer them a fair way of living. He is a professional dentist. He has owned a dental clinic for the past twenty five years and looks forward to further growing his business. His wife is also employed, and works as a teacher in a local school. Today, he’s asking to borrow $1600 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to renovate and change the interior design of his clinic in order to keep it modern and proper. In the future he plans to take more Kiva loans and purchase additional technological equipment in order to offer his customers a better service.
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.
