This Kiva borrower is an 18-year-old single man from Lebanon. He is living with his parents and four siblings. He started his career at a very young age, working as a plumber. His work is specialized in installing toilets, faucets etc. He works on a freelance basis sticking with multiple projects and private businesses. Today, he is requesting to borrow $1,200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase additional materials for his work such as pipes, bathroom fixtures, etc. He says that these purchases will allow him to better serve his clients. In the future, he is willing to expand his business operation into wider areas.
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.
