This Kiva borrower is a 31-year-old married man living with his wife and two school-age children. He is from Lebanon. He has been working as a home electrician for the past 13 years. He also provides his customers with sanitary services. He works on a freelance basis. From time to time, he gets help from a part-timer in order to accomplish the work and satisfy his customers' needs.
Today, he is requesting to borrow $1500 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase a mini van to expand his business into other areas and be able to serve a wider range of clientele; he feels positive about his business prospects for the coming years.
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.
