Mohamad is a 31 year old married man with one child. He has been working as a taxi driver for the past 10 years. He owns a taxi van to transport a larger number of clients. He services his town and its surroundings. He works upon the request of his customers for private transportation.
Today Mohamad is asking to borrow $1,000 to perform maintenance on his van after being in bad circumstances so he can apply himself towards always meeting the demands of his clients and present a comfortable service for them.
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.
