This Kiva borrower is a 51-year-old married man. He is from Lebanon. He lives with his wife and two young children. He has been working in the domain of plumbing for 36 years, depending on customers' requests, offering them plumbing products and services. He is the only income source for his family.
Today, he is requesting to borrow $1100 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase additional tools and equipment so he can increase his sales and therefore 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.
