Hasan is a 42-year-old married man with 3 unemployed children. He has worked as a taxi driver since 1984, providing service in his town and the surrounding villages. He sometimes provides private taxi transportation upon customer request. He works hard all day long to make a good income for his family. Today, Hasan is requesting to borrow $1,000 to perform maintenance on his car and renovate the vehicle painting in order 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.
