This Kiva borrower is a 19-year-old single man living with his parents and four siblings (two of them are still attending school). He is from Lebanon. He works at a local library to earn income in order to help his father pay his education fees. He is working and at the same time pursuing his education. With his requested loan of $1000 from Kiva's partner, Ameen s.a.l., he will pay his education fees to avoid having any financial problems with the university management. In the future, he is planning to work for a big company.
Due to political and social challenges in Lebanon, personally identifiable attributes of this entrepreneur 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.
