Abdallah is a 35-year-old Lebanese man. He’s married to Fatima, a beautiful young woman. They have three small children who are still attending school. Abdallah is a great man who loves his family and really cares to offer them a respectable life. He works non-stop, on his own, to be able to cover their expenses. He has been working as a carpenter for ten years. He’s an honest and punctual man, which makes his customers loyal to him.
Today, he’s asking for a loan from Kiva partner, Ameen s.a.l., to purchase supplies and materials for his business such as paints, wood, and many other things. This Kiva loan will facilitate his business operations and allow him to start his new project properly. He’s doing his best to earn a higher income and educate his children at an excellent school to help them live a very comfortable, hardworking life.
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.
