The Kiva borrower is a 46-year-old married man and the father of 4 children. One of his children is attending the university. He works as a farmer specialized in cultivating lemon products. He has been involved in this occupation since 1990. He works hard to be able to provide a good education for his children. And today, he is requesting a loan $700 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to pay for his son courses at the university. His son is studying business management and he is in his second year. In the future, his son is planning to work in an advertising and marketing company.
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.
