He's well known in the whole region where he distributes his products to the shops and he sells also to individual clients upon their request. Today, Mohamad is requesting to borrow $1,200 USD to buy merchandise needed such as raw materials and plastic bottles to increase his sales and therefore 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.
