This Kiva borrower is a 45-year-old married man living with his wife and three school-age children. He has built a good experience working as a construction worker for 25 years. In 1990, he started working independently, taking home/construction projects. He has a good number of clients asking for his services. His income is important to help with the household expenses.
Today, he is requesting to borrow $800 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to increase his business capital and invest in purchasing an engine for his cement mixer in order to continue expansion of his business and to increase his productivity further. He expects that his business will continue to be successful in the coming year.
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.
