Ghanem is a 37-year-old man. He’s married and lives in Lebanon with his wife and two children. He is the one responsible for covering his family expenses and responding to their needs. He also has his wife’s support. Ghanem is obliged to work continually as he tries to enhance his family’s way of living.
He has been working in the construction field since 1997. Regardless of being satisfied with what he has attained so far, he suffers from a bad financial situation; that’s the reason why he’s asking today for a loan from Kiva Partner Vitas s.a.l to improve his business by purchasing new construction tools, as he plans to keep on offering the best quality of work for his clients. In the near future, he plans to take more loans to open his own construction tools shop. This is how he works really hard to achieve his goals.
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.
