This Kiva borrower is a 22-year-old single man from Lebanon. He lives with his parents and two brothers. He has been working in a restaurant since 2008 to earn income. With his business income, he is able to help his father with the family expenses.
As is common among young Lebanese men, he has a job and is pursuing education at the same time. Today, he is requesting to borrow $1200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to pay for his university education fees. He is studying computer engineering and this is his second year.
In the future, he is planning to start his career in a computer company to gain experience and be able to help his parents with his income. In the long term, he is planning to open a computer shop in his town.
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.
