Mohammad is a 39-year-old married Lebanese man living with his wife. They both wish to have children. For this reason, Mohammad is trying his best to build a good future for his family. He has owned a computer shop for the past ten years. He also sells video games. He’s well known in his town as a reputable and friendly person. Today, he’s looking for a loan of $1,300 from Kiva's partner, Ameen s.a.l., to purchase additional computers and video games for his shop. This will boost his sales. In the future, he plans to open his own small networking company.
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.
