Ibrahim is a 43-year-old Lebanese married man. He lives with his wife, the mother of his four children who are all attending school. Like every couple, Ibrahim and his wife wish to offer their children a respectable life, far from problems and difficulties. For this reason, they combine forces to be able to afford the heavy life expenses.
Ibrahim opened his own butchery in 2002. He’s a reputable person who always searches to offer his customers good and fresh products. Today, he’s asking for a loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to buy added cattle for his business and increase his sales. In that way, he will be capable to develop his business and augment his earnings. In the future, he plans to raise cattle and enlarge his business as much as he can.
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.
