This Kiva borrower is a 47-year-old married man from Lebanon. He lives with his wife and two school-age children. He helps his wife with the family's income. His wife works as a babysitter. He has worked as a freelance wall foliage specialist for 30 years. He obtained his first Kiva loan and he has been a reliable Ameen borrower with consistent, on-time repayments.
Today, he is requesting to borrow $1,500 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to improve his business and renew his tools. He is very positive about his future and willing to take on multiple construction projects.
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.
