Wassim is a 24-year-old young man living in Burj Barajneh, Mount Lebanon. He has owned a printing shop in his village for the past five years. Today, Wassim is requesting to borrow $1200 to buy a new photocopier for his shop.
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.
