This Kiva borrower is a 27 year old single man who lives with his parents. Despite his young age, he has gained good experience working in floor coverings for the past 8 years. In 2006, he started working independently and taking on home projects. He has a good number of clients asking for his services. This young man helps with his father with the family expenses with his income.
Today, he is requesting to borrow $1100 from Kiva partner Ameen s.al. to increase his business capital and invest in purchasing a paving cutter and new tools in order to continue expansion of his business and to further increase his productivity. He expects that his business will continue to be successful in the coming year.
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.
