Youssef is a 36-year-old Lebanese married man living with his wife and two school-aged children. He is responsible for his family and doing the best he can to enrich their way of living.
Youssef started his own business seventeen years ago. He's owned a cattle farm and looks forward to growing his operation. In parallel, he has been working at a local company since 2003.
Today, he’s requesting to borrow a loan from kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase cattle for his farm. He notes that this will increase his productivity and develop his business.
In the future, he plans to open his own dairy products 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.
