Hooks is a 29-year-old married Lebanese man living with his wife. He is an experienced construction worker. He has been involved in this type of business for the past 15 years. He works on his own and he is talented at creating original gypsum decorations.
Today, he is asking to borrow $1000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to renew his business tools. In that way, he will be able to carry out more work. In the future, he is planning to expand his business by opening his own shop and working with some construction entrepreneurs.
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.
