Abdel Mouin is a 52-year-old Lebanese man living with his wife and two children; both children attend school. He has been working as a teacher in one of the local Lebanese schools. This is the only source of income for his family. He works days and nights to bring sufficient income and better support the family financially. Today, Abdel Mouin is requesting a loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to pay his children’s educational fees. His only target is to ensure a good education level for his children and to ensure his family's financial stability. In the future, he is planning to get a second job in order to earn additional income and meet the family needs.
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.
