This Kiva borrower is a 28-year-old man from Lebanon who works as an electrician. He works on a freelance basis, responding to customer requests in addition to taking on home projects.
Over the years, he has been able to pursue more work, building his experience in this field and gaining a good reputation. He has been serving his small community since 2004, and has found an opportunity to expand his business into other areas.
In order to fulfill this project and to take on more projects, he is asking to borrow $800 in order to improve and upgrade his electric 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.
