Tanios is a 32-year-old Lebanese single man living on his own. He has been working as a home electrician for the past 10 years. He works on a freelance basis, serving clients wherever they are located. With his requested loan of $700 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l., he will invest in purchasing the new tools he needs. He has recently stuck with multiple electric projects and has to be prepared to satisfy the clients well. He feels positive about the future of his business and looks forward to working on bigger projects.
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.
