Gaby is a 25-year-old, married man from Lebanon living with his wife. He has been working in the architectural field for the past five years and, at the same time, pursuing his education. Today, he is an experienced architect. His work consists of providing customers with precise external surfaces. He cooperates with his wife who works as a teacher to meet the family's needs. Today, he is requesting $1100 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to be able to purchase his own stamp. He states that this stamp will help him proceed with his business operations independently and will allow him to better promote his services. In the future, he plans to open his own office.
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.
