Hussein is a 39-year-old married Lebanese man living with his wife. He has worked as a furniture manufacturer since 2000. He is very gifted and completes his work professionally and competently. He cooperates financially with his wife, who sells pickles to be able to pay the heavy costs of living.
Today, Hussein is in need to have a loan from Kiva partner Vitas s.a.l to purchase wood. Hussein’s current plan is to increase his business productivity with the aim of benefiting from a higher income and enhancing the family’s way of living.
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.
