Nayef is a 24-year-old single man living with his parents and two siblings. He has eight years of experience working as a plumber. Four years ago, he started to work independently. Today, he is requesting to borrow $1,000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase new tools for his business. He is willing to work closely with multiple projects and needs to get ready to be in the requisition of the clients. Nayef hopes that the coming year will continue to bring him positive growth.
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.
