Houssam is 32 years old. He’s Lebanese and married to Maysa. He lives with her in addition to their two school-aged children. He’s trying his best to build a good future for his family especially his children. He’s responsible for covering their study fees, not to forget their heavy daily expenses.
Houssam started to work in the construction field in the year 2000. He works on a free-lance basis and has more than a few projects to accomplish. He’s specialized at installing tiles. He’s sure that the more projects he is able to take on, the higher his revenues will be.
Today, he has the intention to borrow a loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase new tools and construction supplies for his business. He’s going to start his new project very soon, and this Kiva loan will help him accomplish his work in a good way.
Houssam is very ambitious, awaiting the perfect time to grow in his occupation.
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.
