This Kiva borrower is a 31-year-old engaged man living on his own. He is from Lebanon. He has been doing construction work for almost five years. He is especially talented at completing woodwork projects. He works in local projects at the request of clients.
He has benefitted from a first Kiva loan and has been a very good client with payments on time. Today, he is requesting to borrow $1000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase additional wood for his newest project. In the future, he is planning to improve his work and expand his business operation by taking bigger projects and start working with construction entrepreneurs.
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.
