This Kiva borrower is a 38-year-old single man from Lebanon. He lives with his parents and one sibling. He's owned an air conditioning products and appliances store for 22 years. He is the only income source for the family. He obtained his first Kiva loan and was a very good client with punctual payments.
Today, he is requesting a loan of $1700 from Kiva's partner, Ameen s.a.l., to purchase new tools and equipment so he can proceed with his work properly.
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.
