This Kiva borrower is a 20-year-old single man. He lives with his parents and three siblings in Lebanon. He worked for a network for more than four years. After noticing the absence of such a business in his town, he decided to open his own network in 2008. He helps his father with the family’s income.
Today, he is requesting a loan of $700 from Kiva's partner, Ameen s.a.l., to renew his computers and perform maintenance for the shop and his tools. He wants his customers to enjoy a comfortable pleasant area.
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.
