The Kiva borrower is a 24-year-old single man from Lebanon. He lives on his own. He has been working as a wood painter for five years. He works on a freelance basis. He is good at his job and has many customers asking for his services. With his business income, he is able to satisfy his needs.
Today, he is requesting to borrow $1,200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase new painting tools. These purchases will allow him to present better quality services to the clients. In the future, he hopes to further expand his business and continue his work properly to earn higher income.
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.
