Khalil is a 34-year-old Lebanese married man living with his wife and two school-aged children. He has big responsibilities to his family, especially his children. He has been working in a wheels shop since 1996. He wants a loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to pay his children’s study fees. He would be pleased to see them achieve high educational levels. He plans to use future 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.
