This Kiva borrower is a 44-year-old married man. He is from Lebanon. He lives with his wife and two children. He has owned butcher shop since 1995. He offers his clients tasty fresh meat. His work income is vital to be able to take good care of his family. He has obtained two Kiva loans and was a reliable client with payments on time.
Today, he is requesting to borrow $1500 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase a car for his job. In that way, it will be easier for him to buy meat from wholesalers located in different areas. He estimates that with the coming harvest, his profits will increase.
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.
