Hussein is a 55-year-old married Lebanese man. He lives with his wife and three children, two of whom work. They cooperate with their father Hussein to improve their status financially in order to live in better conditions. Hussein has been working as a photographer since 2000. He works on his own, photographing events such as weddings, parties, concerts, and many other special occasions. He is professional and well-known in his town and the surrounding areas. Today, he is applying for a loan from Kiva Partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase a video camera for his business. Clients always ask for video, and this will be a great step for Hussein to be able to take on more events and increase his earnings. One of his greatest dreams is to be known outside the country, so that he can grow his business and earn higher profits.
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.
