This Kiva borrower is a 27-year-old engaged man from Lebanon who is living alone. He has owned an animal husbandry business since 2006. He works hard to get the work done. He is responsible for completing the tough tasks such as cleaning the ranch and feeding the cows well to produce enough milk to sell. This allows him to earn a satisfactory income and live in proper conditions. Today, he is requesting to borrow $1,200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase added fodder for the cattle. He is willing to increase his business productivity and earn greater income to make the needed savings since he is planning to get married soon and has to be capable of handling all the weddings expenses.
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.
