Ihab is a 20-year-old single man who has been working as a car repairman for the past eight years after stopping his education.
In 2008, Ihab opened his own car repair shop to earn income to help satisfy his life needs and to support his family. He is planning to expand his business and make it better to attract more clients. To do so, he is requesting $1,200 to increase his inventory and to buy more tools needed for his business.
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.
