This Kiva borrower is a 36-year-old married man from Lebanon. He lives with his wife and six children; five of them are still attending school. He has been working as a fisherman for more than 15 years. He owns a fishing boat. He works hard during the summer season to make a good profit since his sales increase during this season.

Today, he is requesting to borrow $1200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase required fishing equipment and supplies. He will also perform much needed repairs on his fishing boat. These modifications will facilitate his fishing operation and make it more secure especially in rough weather. In the future, he would like to purchase another boat.
