Georges is a 38-year-old married Lebanese man. He lives with his wife and only one child. He's considered as the main source of income in the family and is working really hard to provide a better future for his young child.
He started his own metal works in 2003 and has already a total of eighteen years of experience in this domain. Today, he needs a loan of $1600 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase added metalworking equipment for his business. He's certain that this Kiva loan will increase his profits by 15%. In the future, he plans to open his own metal shop.
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.
