This Kiva borrower is a 56-year-old married man and the father of one school-age child. He is from Lebanon. He is an experienced home painter; he has been working as a freelance home painter for almost 30 years. He is the main income provider of his family.
Today, he is requesting to borrow $1000 from Kiva's partner, Ameen s.a.l., to purchase a step ladder for his painting occupation. This will be his second Kiva loan and he is very thankful for the results. In the future, he is looking to further enlarge his business operation. He hopes that the coming year will continue to bring positive growth and increased profits.
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.
