The Kiva borrower is a 39-year-old single man living in Lebanon. He has twelve years of experience working as a farmer. He has owned his own farm since 2000. He works independently on his farm and he lives on his own. He cultivates only vegetables and delivers his products to the locA. agriculture markets. Today, he is asking for a loan of $1,200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to invest in supplies for his work.
With the loan, he will be able to purchase needed supplies such as seeds and fertilizers. In the future, he is planning to enlarge his land and start cultivating fruits.
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.
