Hasan is a 31-year-old Lebanese married man who lives with his wife and four children, who are still attending school. He really cares about his children’s future and for that reason he’s doing his best to enhance their life. Hasan has owned a butchery since 2006 and he serves delicious and fresh meat. Today, he’s in need of a $1200 loan from Kiva's partner Ameen s.a.l. to buy new supplies such as knifes, food mixer, electricA. equipment, etc. In the future, he plans to start a cattle trade business.
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.
