Wassim has owned a car repair shop for the past fifteen years and specializes in repairing bodywork in addition to painting. He started working in this occupation when he was quite young and, due to his long experience, he was able to make a good number of customers over the years.
Wassim has already taken a loan from Kiva and he's pleased with his decision to take a loan via Ameen. He has repaid on-time and he has even repaid the full loan amount earlier than his scheduled end date.
Today, Wassim is requesting a new loan of $2,000 to buy new tools needed for his business in order to increase his business productivity.
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.
