Mohammad is a 38-year-old married man with two children, living in Nabatieh Al Fawka in southern Lebanon. He opened a grocery store 15 years ago, where he services his village. He has already taken several micro loans from Ameen to improve his business. Today, he would like to borrow $1,200 to increase his inventory.
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.
