This Kiva borrower is a 39-year-old married man from Lebanon. He is living with his wife and one young child. He is an experienced furniture painter; he has owned his shop for almost three years. He is very talented and completes his work in contemporary ways. He is the main income provider for his family.
Today, he is requesting to borrow $2000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase a new air compressor and other necessary tools. He obtained his first Kiva loan and he was very thankful for the results. He hopes that this loan will also positively impact his work. In the future, he is looking to further expand his business.
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.
