This Kiva borrower is a 48-year-old married man and the father of 3 school-aged children. He is an experienced furniture maker; he has owned a furniture making shop for almost twenty years. He is the main income provider of his family.
Today, he is requesting to borrow $1700 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to increase his inventory. This will be his second Kiva loan and he is very thankful for the results. In the future, he is looking to further expand his business operation. He hopes that the coming year will continue to bring positive growth and increased sales.
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.
