This Kiva borrower is a 40-year-old married man and the father of 4 school-aged children. He is from Lebanon. He works as a freelance construction agent depending on customer’s demand. He has been involved in this field for twenty years. He is the only financial support for his family. He has obtained his first Kiva loan and he was a very good client with payments made on time.
Today, he is requesting to borrow $1500 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase additional equipment and tools to improve his business and provide his customers with better service.
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.
