Samir is a 58-year-old married man and father of three children. He has been working as a taxi driver since 2000 to earn income for the family. Today, Samir is requesting to borrow $600 to perform maintenance on his car to continue his work properly.
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.
