This Kiva borrower is a 41-year-old married man from Lebanon. He lives with wife and two young children who are attending school. He has been working as a plumber and painter since 1990. He is the only income provider of the family. He has obtained two Kiva loans and he was an excellent client with payments on time.
Today, he is requesting to borrow $1200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase a new car so he can make his transportation easier. He expects as a result to increase his productivity and therefore his earnings.
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.
