Radwan is a 53-year-old Lebanese man who is married to Fatima. He lives with her and their four children, three of whom are attending school while the other one just started working.
Radwan is trying his best to build a good future for his family. He’s responsible for covering his children’s study fees as well as all the heavy life expenses.
Since 2000, he has been working in the construction field. He works on a freelance basis and has more than a few projects to accomplish.
Today, Radwan intends to borrow a loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase new tools and construction supplies for his business. In this way, he will be able to start his new projects properly. Also, this Kiva loan will help him accomplish his work in a very short period of time. Radwan is an ambitious man who seeks better life conditions.
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.
