Charles is a 32 year old married man with one child, living in Awkar, Mount Lebanon. He has been working as a home painter since 2000. Today, Charles is requesting to borrow $1,200 to buy new painting equipment for his job.
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.
