Hasan is a 37-year-old married man with 3 young children. He has been working in construction for the past 20 years. In 2000, he decided to work on his own and create his own business taking on construction projects. He's very happy because he feels independent in his own business. Today, Hasan is requesting to borrow $1,200 to buy a car (Rapid model) for easier transport to the houses where he works.
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.
