Gaby is a 20-year-old single man from Lebanon. He is living with one parent and two siblings. This young man decided in 2008 to start his own business working as a home electrician. He works at the client’s requests. He has obtained his first Kiva loan and has been a reliable client with punctual payments. Today, he is requesting to borrow $1,500 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to renew his business tools to be able to acquire more projects. In the future, he is planning to open his own electric shop.
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.
