Sobhi is a 53-year-old married man with two children, living in Borj Al Barajeneh in the Beirut suburbs. He has been providing transaction clearance for vehicle documents for three years, in addition to owning a taxi. Today, Sobhi wants to borrow US$ 600 to improve both his businesses.
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.
