Houssam is a 29-year-old single man from Lebanon. He lives independently. He has owned an insurance office since 2009 and has more than five years of experience working in the same occupation. He deals with multiple insurance companies. He sells different types of insurance such as life, all risks, car, health insurance, etc. He has one part-time employee working as an outdoor sales agent under his supervision.
Today, Houssam is requesting a loan of $1200 from Kiva's partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase insurance to sell. In the future, he is hoping to expand his business operation into other areas.
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.
