Hussein is a 19-year-old Lebanese man. He is single and lives with his sibling. Hussein has taken on sole responsibility for his sibling and works really hard in order to provide him all that he needs. He has been working as a plumber for the past three years and looks forward to expanding his business. Hussein is trustworthy, accurate, and loved by his customers.
Today, Hussein is asking to borrow $800 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase added supplies for his business such as pipes, bathroom fixtures, etc. He says this will help him continue his work properly. In the future, he plans to take on bigger projects and he may expand his work, even outside of the country.
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.
