Hussein is a 48-year-old married Lebanese man living with his wife and two children. One of his children is working while the other is still studying. With the cooperation of his wife, Hussein has been able to pay his child's school fees in addition to all the other family expenses. Since 1981, he has been working in the construction business and waiting for the perfect time to expand in his field. Hussein works independently to meet customer requests.
Hussein is requesting a 1,800 USD loan from the Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase new construction supplies for his business which will enhance his way of living. In the future, he plans to take on bigger projects outside 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.
