This Kiva borrower is a 41-year-old married man from Lebanon who lives with his wife and two children. Fourteen years ago he opened his own aluminum molding factory.
He is requesting a loan of $600 to purchase new tools for the business.
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.
