Wassim is a 39-year-old Lebanese married man. He lives with his wife and three children, who are all studying. He’s more than happy to be supportive and helpful to his family, even though he’s working hard and nonstop. Wassim has many years of experience in the agriculture field and started to work on his own tractor in 1995.
Today, he seeks to borrow a loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to perform needed maintenance on his tractor. He notes that this will allow him to carry on his work properly. In the future, he plans to buy land and improve his cultivation.
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.
