Ali is a 24 year-old man living in Al Chiyyah, Mount Lebanon. He has owned a car mechanic repair shop since 2006. Today Ali is requesting to borrow $1,000 in order to buy a car scanner for the shop.
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.
