This Kiva borrower is a 49-year-old married man living with his wife and three school-age children. In 2000, he started his new business working as a farmer. He cultivates all types of vegetables according to the season and he distributes the harvest to specific agriculturA. markets he works with. He’s thankful for his new business; it allows him to make extra money for the family. Today, he is requesting to borrow $1,200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to buy new farming supplies such as fertilizers and seeds because he's planning to expand his business. He is very confident that he will be able to achieve substantiA. growth in the coming season.
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.
