This Kiva borrower is a 38-year-old married man living with his wife and one school-aged child in Lebanon.
He has owned a cattle farm in his town since 2006. He works independently in his business. His farm produces dairy products all sold to local customers and markets. His is the only income source of the family.
Today, he is asking to borrow $1200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase fodder for his cattle so that he can ensure a good quality and quantity of milk. He aims to increase his business productivity and earn higher income in order to better support his family.
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.
