Jihad is a 50-year-old Lebanese married man. He lives with his wife and two children, who are both studying. He’s seeking to cover his family expenses and offer them a fair way of living.
Jihad is a civil engineer and has opened his own office in 2011. He has sixteen years of experience in the engineering field. Today, he is requesting to borrow a loan from Kiva Partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase a new laptop in addition to some architectural tools. He notes that this will speed up his work and facilitate it as well. In the future, he plans to take on bigger projects and increase his earnings.
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.
