This Kiva borrower is a 23-year-old Lebanese single man. He lives with his parents and one sibling. He has been working as a part-time salesman in a library since 2008. In parallel, this young man is pursuing his education at the university. He is studying computer programming and accounting and he is about to finish his third year. This young man knows how to manage his time between his job and his education.
Today, he is requesting to borrow $1,200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to pay his university education fees. In the future, he is planning to start his career in a computer company to gain experience and be able to help his parents with his income. In the long term, he is planning to open a computer shop in his town.
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.
