This Kiva borrower is a 29-year-old single man from Lebanon. He lives on his own. He is an experienced construction worker. He is especially talented at completing drywall work. He has been involved in this profession for the past 10 years. He started working independently in his field back in 2007.
Today, he is requesting to borrow $1200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase scaffolding and new tools needed for his work. In the future, he is planning to expand his business by opening a construction office and working with some construction entrepreneurs.
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.
