This Kiva borrower is an 18-year-old single man living with one parent and six siblings. He is from Lebanon. He works as an electrician on a freelance basis upon clients' requests. Despite his young age, he works hard to be able to help his father with the family expenses.
Today, he is requesting to borrow $1000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to invest in purchasing new tools needed. In that way, he will be able to take on more projects and expand his business operation. He is hoping to increase his earnings. In the future, he wants to open up his own electric shop.
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.
