Ibrahim is a 39-year-old single man from Lebanon who lives with his parents and five siblings. The entire family except Ibrahim’s mother cooperate together financially to satisfy their life needs.
Ibrahim has worked in the construction field since 1992 and has been able over the years to hire four full-time employees who benefit from fair salaries that allow them to support their families as well.
Today, he is applying for a loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase scaffolding and other equipment and supplies. He wants to get prepared to satisfy clients' demands. In the future, he hopes to take additional multiple construction projects in order to further expand his business operations.
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.
