This Kiva borrower is a 37-year-old man, engaged to be married, from Lebanon. He is living with his parents and one sibling. He has worked in the construction field for more than 12 years, and in 2000, he started running his own business. He is especially talented at completing drywall projects. He works closely with multiple construction projects and he also manages houses in his village and its surroundings.
He obtained his first Kiva loan and he was very satisfied with the results. Today, he is requesting to borrow $2000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to buy construction tools and supplies because his business is growing and he's planning to work on bigger projects.
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.
