Abbas is a 25-year-old Lebanese single man living with his parents and three siblings. He has six years of experience working as a home electrician. He works upon request from clients. He assists his father who works as a plumber to satisfy the family needs. Today, he is requesting to borrow $1000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase electrical tools and supplies. He feels positive about his business prospects and looks forward to working on bigger projects in his community.
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.
