This Kiva borrower is a 38-year-old married man and the father of 5 school-aged children. He is an experienced construction worker. He is especially talented at completing woodwork and gypsum board projects. He has been doing this for the past 12 years. He works with some entrepreneurs and constructs things for the clients. Today, he wants to borrow $1200 from the Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. in order to purchase the construction supplies needed for his newest project.
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.
