Nayef is a 32-year-old Lebanese married man living with his wife and three children. He has been working as a construction laborer for the past 15 years. In 2000, he decided to start working independently. So, he made deals with multiple construction project's owners and individuals in order to take the responsibility of achieving all the paving work. With his requested loan of $2000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l, he will be able to purchase more materials needed. In the future, he plans to open his own paving factory.
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.
