Saiid is a 34-year-old Lebanese married man living with his wife and two children. Over the years, he has made a good experience working as a painter. He works in his town, sticking with multiple projects, and also works upon customers’ requests. He is seeking to offer his family a respectable way of living, since he’s their only source of income.
Today, Saiid is asking to borrow a loan from Kiva partner Vitas s.a.l. to renew his business tools and improve his business. He needs to be prepared to satisfy the clients and make a good business reputation.
In the future, he hopes to take 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.
