The Kiva borrower is a 32-year old married man from Lebanon. He has 3 young children. He has almost ten years of experience working as a farmer. He has been running his own farm since 2003 cultivating all types of vegetables and potatoes. He also uses plastic tents to grow his products. Today, he is requesting to borrow $1200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase needed supplies for his agricultural work and seeds for the coming season. In the coming years, he hopes to continue the expansion of his business because his work is vital for his family.
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.
