This Kiva borrower is a 25-year-old Lebanese married man living with his wife. He has been working as a construction worker since 2007, specializing in completing wall foliage jobs. He has eight years of experience in this field. His work is well-accomplished and prepared in modern ways. He would like to increase his income in order to better support his family financially. With his loan of $1,200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l, he will buy construction tools and supplies. He will also invest in purchasing scaffolding needed in order to continue expansion of his business and to further increase his productivity. He expects that his business will continue to be successful in the coming years.
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.
