This Kiva borrower is a 29-year-old single man from Lebanon. He lives with his parents and two siblings. He has been working as a freelance electrician for more than 10 years, sticking with multiple electric projects. He also works as a plumber serving customers upon their request.
In Lebanon, it is common at all levels of society for people to have multiple businesses to be able to cover the increasing costs of food, housing, and other family expenses. Today, this borrower is requesting to borrow $1000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase an air compressor and new tools needed. He feels positive about his business future and looks forward to working on bigger 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.
