This Kiva borrower is a 59-year-old married man living with his wife and one child. He has made his life as a professional builder. He has been involved in this type of business for the past 25 years. He represents the only financial support to his family. He works closely with some construction entrepreneurs.
Due to his long experience and good business reputation, his business level has developed. Today, he is requesting to borrow $1200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to renew his construction tools and replace the long-used ones.
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.
