Abbas is a 33-year-old Lebanese married man. He lives with his wife and two school aged children at their house, which is located in one of the most beautiful villages of Lebanon. Both Abbas and his wife are managing their own household.
On a daily basis, Abbas works non-stop to provide his family with the needed income. He has been working in his own bakery for many years, and he is well known for his good place and delicious food. He has loyal customers always asking for his delightful bread.
Today, Abbas would like to borrow a loan from Kiva Partner Vitas s.a.l. to pay his childrenss school costs. He wishes to see them achieving higher educational levels. He expects a boost in his business income as he expands his business. In the near future, he has more than few ideas to grow his domain, and he is thinking of taking more Kiva loans to better support his children, especially with the great result he has obtained from his first one.
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.
