Kayed is a 32-year-old man and father of 4 children. He has owned a specific Lebanese food kiosk since 1995. Over the years, thanks to his business income, he has been able to meet his children's needs. Today, Kayed is requesting to borrow US$ 1,000 to renovate his kiosk in order to attract more customers and increase his income.
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.
