Naser is a single 20-year-old Lebanese man. He lives with his parents and seven siblings, four of whom are working. He has three years of experience in the construction field and works on his own. He’s an expert in his field and knows very well how to please his customers. Today, he needs to borrow $1,600 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to renew his construction equipment. This loan will facilitate his business operation and augment his revenues. In the future, he plans to take projects outside the country and serve a wider range of clients.
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.
