Hassan is a 24-year-old single Lebanese man living with his parents and one sibling. In addition to the family's main income from his father, Hassan's is also considered as an important source of financial earnings.
He has been working in floor covering and bricks for the past eight years and he's way too good. He works independently and has his own and loyal customers. Today, he's asking to borrow $1200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase new supplies. He notes that this will help him serve more customers and therefore increase his profits by 10%.
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.
