Hasan is a 46-year-old married man from Lebanon. He lives with his wife and three children. He is the main income provider of the family and works really hard to be able to handle their expenses.
He has been involved in construction for many years. He is well known in his town and has gained a fair number of clients so far.
Today he is requesting to borrow a loan from Kiva partner Vitas s.a.l, to purchase a quantity of wood needed for his business, in addition to some construction tools and supplies. This will definitely allow him to achieve his work competently and be able to present good quality services to the clients. He works on a freelance basis, and hopes to take bigger projects and increase his earning 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.
