Ibrahim is a married 56 year-old Lebanese man who lives with his wife and two children, who are still attending school. He owns an agricultural tractor with which he performs tasks such as excavating the land to prepare it for cultivation. Today he is applying for a loan from Kiva partner Vitas s.a.l. to equip his tractor with a water vessel so as to carry out his work properly. Ibrahim intends to enhance his work operations by offering his clients high-quality services in order to satisfy their demands and keep them loyal to him. In the future, he plans to expand his business.
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.
