This Kiva borrower is a 49-year-old married man from Lebanon. He lives with his wife and one young child who is attending school. He has been working as a freelance construction agent since 1992. He is the only income source in his family. He works closely with some contractors. He is very positive about his future and hopes to take more profitable construction projects.
Today, he is requesting to borrow $1,200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase an air compressor and a crane to expand his business operation, allowing him to increase his income.
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.
