This Kiva borrower is a 36-year-old Lebanese married man living with his wife and 4 school-aged children. He has 15 years of experience working as a farmer. He has been running his own farm since 2004. He cultivates all types of fruit according to the season. He uses plastic tents to make his produce grow faster. He is the main income provider of the family.
He has obtained his first Kiva loan and was a very good client with payments on time. Today, he is requesting to borrow $1000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase additional products and needed supplies for his agricultural work. He is certain that the loan will help him increase his profits.
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.
