Abdallah is a 43-year-old married man with 4 children. He has been working in a cafeteria for the past 30 years. In 2008, after this long experience, he opened his own cafeteria. He has been able during this period to have a growing number of customers. Today, Abdallah is requesting to borrow US$ 1,200 to make some modifications and renovations to his cafeteria to attract more customers.
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.
