This Kiva borrower is a 25-year-old single man from Lebanon. He lives with his mother and brother. In addition to his mother’s income (who works as a home tailor), he is considered as the second and only income source of the family. He is experienced in gypsum and opened his own gypsum store in 2007. He works upon the request of his clients making different designs. Today, he is requesting $1200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase additional gypsum products so he will be able to increase his productivity and reach a higher level in his life. He is confident that his work 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.
