This Kiva borrower is a 32-year-old Lebanese married man living with his wife. He has been working as a car painter for 13 years and started managing his own work in 2000. He has taken advantage of five Kiva loans and was a very good client who paid on time. He notes that these loans helped him in his business expansion and permitted him to hire three full-time employees. His wife works in a locA. company in order to gain extra money for the family.
Today, he is requesting to borrow $1,000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase additionA. painting tools and supplies. In the future, he hopes to continue the growth of his business and be able to take on more 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.
