Hussein is a 23-year-old single man from Lebanon, living with his parents and three siblings. He has been involved in the construction field for the past six years. He works on a freelance basis and his job is specialized in floor covering.
Today, he is asking for a loan of $2,000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase an electrical generator for his business. This will help him respond rapidly for his customer’s demands and allow him to complete his tasks punctually.
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.
