This Kiva borrower is a 25-year-old Lebanese married man living with his wife and one child. Despite his young age, he has built up good experience working in floor covering for the past eight years.
In 2010, he decided to work independently, sticking with multiple projects in his village and its surroundings. He has a good number of clients asking for his services. Today, he is asking to borrow $1500 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase new tools to continue the expansion of his business and further increase his productivity. He feels positive about his business' potentiA. in 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.
