Hasan is a 36-year-old Lebanese married man living with his wife and one school-aged child.
In order to live properly and be able to pay his child’s school fees, Hasan works hard and nonstop. He’s an independent contractor specializing in floor cleaning and has been working in this area since 1991. Today, he’s asking for a loan of $1600 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase a new floor cleaning machine. He notes that this machine will facilitate his work and let him take on more projects without facing problems. In the future, he plans to renew his tools and take bigger projects.
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.
