This Kiva borrower is a 25-year-old single man from Lebanon. He lives with his parents and three siblings. In 2008, he started a new business working as a farmer on his own land. He cultivates all types of vegetables and he distributes his products to specific agricultural markets that he works with. There is one employee helping him in this job. He helps his father in collaboration with his brothers to provide better living conditions for the family.
Today he is requesting to borrow $1,000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase agricultural spices and seeds. His aim is to increase his productivity and sales in order to get a superior income. In the future, he is planning to open a store where he will sell his goods.
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.
