Youssef is a 36-year-old married man. He is living with his wife and four children, who are all attending school. He is the main income provider for the family, and he works very hard to be able to handle the heavy life expenses.
Youssef has been involved in the construction field for the past ten years. He specializes in floor covering. He is well known for his original designs and decorations.
Today, Youssef is requesting a loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase an electrical saw in order to be able to cut the pavers. He always seeks to present good-quality services to his clients.
Youssef works on a freelance basis and hopes to become the owner of a pavers shop in the near future.
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.
