Kassem has been working in construction, specializing in completing wall foliage work, for the past nine years. He has been waiting for the perfect timing to grow in this field as much as possible. In parallel, he works as a constructor in a local company. Kassem is now looking to borrow $1,200 from Kiva's partner, Ameen s.a.l, to purchase new construction supplies such as foliage paper, scaffolding and many other items. In the future, he plans to take on bigger projects outside the country.
Important InformationDue 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.
