Omar is a 28-year-old Lebanese married man living with his wife and two children who are still attending school. He really cares for their future and is ready to do the best he can to see them graduate and attain higher educational degrees. For that reason, he started to work in a local airport in 2007. In parallel, he works as a policeman in one of the local municipalities. Today, he’s asking for a loan of $1500 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to pay his children's educational fees. In that way, they will be able to continue their education properly. In the future, he plans to focus on one industry as to make more profits and better support his family.
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.
