Ali is a 21-year-old single man. He has owned a car repair shop since 2002. He received training for this job when he has young, from a friend. Today, Ali is requesting to borrow $1,000 because he is planning to expand his business by buying more tools.
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.
