This Kiva borrower is a 19-year-old single man from Lebanon. He lives with his family. Despite his young age, he is a proud new business owner; he has worked as a home electrician since 2007. He independently owns his personal business. Due to his newest experience in this field, he takes on small projects in addition of repairing home electricity upon request of the clients.
Today, he is requesting to borrow $1100 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase additional electric tools and a special electric machine for his business. The income from his business is an important source of income for himself and his family. He is confident that his work will continue to be successful in the coming year. In the future, he is working to take on more and bigger projects to build a good business reputation.
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.
