Nabil is a 32-year-old Lebanese married man living with his wife and only child, who is attending school. He has been a painter since 1999 and has become well-known among people in his community. Nabil's job is the only source of income for the family, so he works hard to earn as much as he can. As he wishes to enlarge his business, Nabil is planning to purchase new painting equipment so that he will be able to start working on a scheduled new project on time.
That is why he has requested a loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. He is sure that this step will enable him to take more and bigger projects in the near future, and therefore achieve his goals.
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.
