Imad is a 35-year-old Lebanese man. He’s married to Fatima, a beautiful young woman. They have two small children who are still attending school.
Imad is a great man who loves his family and really cares to offer them a respectable life. He works nonstop, on his own, to be able to cover their expenses. He has been working as a carpenter since many years ago. He’s an honest man and, above all, punctual, which is what makes his customers loyal to him.
Today, he’s asking for a loan from Kiva partner Vitas s.a.l to renew his tools. This kiva loan will facilitate his business operations and allow him to start his new project properly.
He’s doing his best to collect higher revenues and send his children to an excellent school to help them live a very comfortable life away from hard work.
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.
