This Kiva borrower is a 48-year-old married man from Lebanon. He is living with his wife and three school-age children. He has been working in the agriculture field for almost 25 years. He grows a wide variety of vegetables using large plastic tents. These tents allow him to grow more types of products throughout the year. He is well established in his business. Today, he is requesting to borrow $1,200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase needed supplies for his agricultural work. He estimates that with the coming harvest, his sales will increase and so will his profits.
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.
