This Kiva borrower is a 43-year-old married man from Lebanon. He lives with his wife and three young children who are attending school. He has been working in the agriculture field for 10 years and in 2006 he bought his own land and started to cultivate vegetables and sell them in his town and its surroundings. He is the only income provider of the family.
Today, he is requesting to borrow $700 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to perform needed maintenance on the water canal so that he can guarantee that the vegetables receive the water well and grow well as a result.
Due to political and social challenges in Lebanon, personally identifiable attributes of this entrepreneur 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.
