Fady is a 47-year-old Lebanese married man living with his wife and three children who are still attending school. He’s the main income provider of the family. He has owned a laundry for the past 26 years. His work is specialized in ironing clothes, textiles, curtain etc, in addition to cleaning them using particular products. Today, he’s asking to borrow $1000 from kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to pay his children’s school fees. In that way, he will avoid having any financiA. problem with the school management and will allow his children to pursue their education properly.
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.
