This Kiva borrower is a 39-year-old married man from Lebanon. He lives with his wife and one school-aged child. He had been working as a plumbing and heating specialist for 23 years. Then, he started to work on a freelance basis upon customers' demand. He works hard to meet the required financiA. objective. He obtained his first Kiva loan and he was a very good client.
Today, he is requesting to borrow $1000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase needed equipment and tools so he can expand his business operation and earn more income.
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.
