The Kiva borrower is a 48-year-old married man and has 3 children. He is from Lebanon. He has been working as an experienced flooring worker for the past 30 years. He works on floor covering, kitchen tiling, and bathroom tiling. Due to the long experience in this occupation, he has gained a good number of customers in addition of building a good business reputation. He is thankful for his business income, it provides a good life situation for his family and he was able to finalize the education of two of his children. Today, he is requesting to borrow $1000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase new tools and supplies for a new project.
In the future, he is planning to open a construction office specialized in flooring and ceramics and he hopes he will reach this goal.
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.
