This Kiva borrower is a 28-year-old married man with one child, who is attending school. He is the main income provider for his family and has ten years of experience working as a farmer. He has been running his own farm independently since 2003.
His specialization is using plastic tents to grow his products. These tents allow him to better monitor product quality as well as grow his products for more months during the year.
Today, he is requesting a loan of $1200 to purchase an agricultural plow to cultivate his land.
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.
