This Kiva borrower is a 24-year-old single man from Lebanon. He lives with his parents and two siblings. He started to work as a freelance wall foliage specialist at a very young age. He also works as a home painter and decorator. He helps his father meet the family’s income.
Today, he is requesting to borrow $1000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to renew his tools so he can improve his business operation and earn more income. He is very positive about his future and hopes to deal with several construction projects.
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.
