Nidal is a 31-year-old, married man who lives with his wife and one school-aged child. He is a hard worker looking to offer his family a suitable and appropriate life. Nidal is a furniture painter who works with a high degree of professionalism. He has many years of experience in this job. He works on different projects and always tries to offer his customers the best results he can. He’s well known in his area and has loyal customers who trust the good quality of his work.
Today, he’s asking for a loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to refurbish his painting tools. He will utilize the loan to facilitate his work and have a good start to his new project. Nidal is grateful for all the good things god has given him. In the near future, he hopes to take on more projects, possibly outside the country if this will help him learn new designs and better develop his business.
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.
