This Kiva borrower is a 19-year-old single man from Lebanon. He lives with his parents and 5 siblings. He works in a small local restaurant. In parallel, he is pursuing his education at the university. With his business income, he is able to help his father with the education fees.
Today, he is requesting to borrow $1200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to pay his university education fees. In the future, he is planning to start his career in an appropriate company where he can use his education skills.
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.
