Michel is a 48-year-old Lebanese married man living with his wife and three children; one of them is still studying. The whole family cooperates to cover the heavy costs of life.
Michel has been working in the construction field since 1997. Over the years he was able to build a good business reputation. Today, he is asking to borrow $2,200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase wood for his construction work. In the future, he plans to open his own construction 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.
