This Kiva borrower is a 42-year-old married man living with his wife and two school-aged children. He is from Lebanon. He has been working in the construction field since 2000. He works on a freelance basis. He is specialized in completing brickwork. He cooperates with his wife who works as a teacher in a local school to be able to pay every day expenditures.
Today, he is requesting to borrow $1200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase an electric generator. He works with multiple construction projects where there is no electricity and he uses many machines where electric power is essential to make these machines function. So, the loan purpose will help him make his work much easier. In the future, he is planning to expand his business operation by sticking with bigger construction projects.
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.
