Monzer is a 54-year-old Lebanese man. He is married and lives with his wife. He has two school-aged children and one other child who works. He really cares about his children's future and wants to do the best he can to see them graduate and achieve high positions.
For that reason, in 2008, he started to work as a security guard in a local bank. In parallel, he works as a free-lance taxi driver.
Today, he is looking to borrow $1100 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to pay his children's school fees. In this way, they will be able to continue in education until they graduate.
In the future, he plans to focus on one of his jobs to make more profit and better support his family.
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.
