Mohamad is a 27-year-old Lebanese single man living with his parents and one sibling. His income is very important as he is a big support for his father. He works as a freelance plumber, specializing in installing toilets, faucets, etc. He has been involved in this occupation for the past 4 years. Today, he’s asking to borrow $1000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to invest in purchasing materials for his projects. This may include pipes, bathroom fixtures, etc. In the future, he plans to work on bigger 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.
