Rabih is a 28-year-old single man from Lebanon. He is living alone.

In 2006, in order to supplement his income, Rabih decided to start his own work as a farmer. His job consists of cultivating fruits and vegetables. He takes good care of his land and always seeks to diversify his harvestings to be able to satisfy his clients’ needs.

Today, Rabih is asking to borrow a youth loan from Kiva partner Vitas s.a.l. to purchase the required agricultural tools and supplies, seeds and fertilizers. He states that the loan will certainly help him increase his business productivity by a fair percentage, which will return to him higher profits.

In the future, Rabih plans to take more Kiva loans and expand his lands by cultivating a wider variety of fruits and vegetables.
