The Kiva borrower is a 19-year-old single man living with his parents and 2 siblings. He is from Lebanon. Despite his young age, he started working as a furniture painter 5 years ago. In parallel, he is attending university.
He works hard to manage his time between his business and his education. Today, he is requesting to borrow $1000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to pay for his university fees. He is studying tourism and is in his second year of school.
In the future, he is planning to work in a travel agency or in an airline company because he likes to travel a lot.
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.
