Abdallah is a 61-year-old, married man, living with his wife and four children. He is from Lebanon.
Despite his older age, Abdallah is still working, so as to earn a good income and be able to satisfy his family’s needs. He has owned a restaurant since 2009 and also has more than 30 years of experience working in this domain. Abdallah serves his customers delicious food plates and sandwiches.
Today, he is requesting a loan from Kiva partner, Vitas. s.a.l., to purchase an electrical generator for his business. He states that the loan will positively impact upon his work and he is sure that his sales and revenues will be augmented.
In the future, Abdallah plans to open a new branch of his restaurant in another area.
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.
