Wissam is a 33-year-old married Lebanese man living with his wife and only child. He has been working in the construction field from more than 18 years and he specializes in completing wall foliage work. He began his career at a very young age. Later on, he started to take on his own projects.
Working on a freelance basis, he managed houses in his village and its surroundings. With the requested loan of $1200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l., he will purchase added tools and supplies since he intends to grow his business by sticking with projects for bigger houses.
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.
