Rahif is a 56-year-old Lebanese married man living with his wife and two school-age children. He has big responsibilities toward his family especially his children. He has been working as a truck driver in a local company since 1995. Today, he wants to borrow a loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to pay his children’s study fees. He will be more than happy to see them achieving higher positions. In the future he plans to take more Kiva loans to continue covering his children’s educational fees.
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.
