Ihab is a 32-year-old Lebanese married man living with his wife and only child, who is still studying. He is the one taking care of his family and looking to offer them a fair standard of living. He has been working for the past two years by renting transportation buses on a freelance basis. He’s an expert at his job and well known by his customers. Today, he needs to borrow $1,600 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to pay his daughter's school fees. In that way, she will be able to carry on her education in a proper way. In the future, he plans to develop his job 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.
