The Kiva borrower is a 29-year-old single man from Lebanon. He lives with his parents and one brother. He has been working in a hospitA. in his town since 2007. With his business income, he is able to help his father with the family expenses. As is common among young Lebanese men, he has a job and is pursuing education at the same time. Today, he is requesting to borrow $1000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to pay for his university education fees. He is studying politicA. science and is preparing for his Masters degree.
In the future, he is planning to work as an editor in a Lebanese magazine.
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.
