This Kiva borrower is a 21-year-old single man from Lebanon. He lives with his parents. He works as a private teacher from his house and from time to time, he teaches his students in their own houses. He has obtained his first Kiva loan and it showed very good results. He is specialized in science, third year. Despite his young age, he has to work hard to help his father with the family’s income and be able to handle his university expenses.
Today, he is requesting to borrow $1,000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to pay his university fees and pursue his education without having any financial issues.
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.
