Fadi is a 35-year-old man. He’s married, living with his wife and two school-aged children. He’s a hard worker, ready to support his family as well as he possibly can.
He has been working in installing air conditioners since 2000 on a freelance basis. He is expert in his field and has gained a fair number of customers so far. His wife has been working at the airport for the past three years.
Today, he’s looking to borrow $3,000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase the needed equipment for his business such as electrical tubes, keys and many other items. This will definitely facilitate his business operations and thus increase his earnings.
In the future, he plans to open his own electronics 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.
