Mahmoud is a 45-year-old married man with three children, living in Taalabaya in the Bekaa Valley. He has been working in installation and maintenance of satellite dishes since 1998. Mahmoud wants to buy cables, for better service and in order to increase his profits; therefore, he is requesting to borrow US$ 1,200.
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.
