This Kiva borrower is a 29-year-old single man. He is from Lebanon. He lives with his parents and three siblings. He has specialized in cultivating vegetables for 12 years. In 2000, he bought his own land and proceeded with his business operation by cultivating his land and selling vegetables to people from his community. He cooperates with his parents in the family’s income.
Today, he is requesting to borrow $1,200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to implement an irrigation canal for his land to provide the needed water for his cultivated vegetables to make his productivity faster and bigger.
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.
