Jihad is a 23-year-old single man living with his parents and three siblings. He is from Lebanon. Five years ago, he decided to start running his own business. So he got involved in the construction field in order to earn good income to help his parents pay the heavy life expenses. His job is specialized in brick positioning. Today, he is applying for a loan of $1500 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to buy construction tools and supplies. In the future, he plans to further expand his business.
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.
