This Kiva borrower is a 50-year-old married man and the father of three children. He is from Lebanon. He started working in the agriculture field 35 years ago and started his own business in 1980. He cultivates vegetables and olives. He delivers his harvest to a local agriculture market. He is the main income provider of his family but two of his children help him with the household expenses. One of the children is an employee and the other works as a blacksmith.
