This Kiva borrower is a 43-year-old single man from Lebanon. He lives on his own. He has been working as a farmer for 15 years. In 2000, he bought his own land and started cultivating all types of vegetables and fruits, according to the season. He sells his products to people from his town and neighboring villages. He works hard to be able to satisfy his own needs.
Today, he is requesting to borrow $1,000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase needed supplies for his agricultural work. In the future, he plans to further expand his business and cultivate exotic fruits.
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.
