E. has worked as a home painter since 1997. Working on a freelance basis, he manages parts of house projects in his village and its neighboring areas. With the help of the loan of $1,200 that he has requested to borrow, he will expand his business by buying tools.
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.
