Hassan is a 53-year-old married man from Lebanon who is the father of seven children. He runs a taxi business and has over 28 years of experience as a driver. In Lebanon, it is common to use taxi services to go between neighborhoods in a given town as well as to travel between different regions. These services are especially important in areas where the infrastructure is less developed, which is true for most of the towns outside of Beirut and its suburbs.

Today, Hassan is asking for a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua to buy a new car for his business. His previous loan allowed him to perform much- needed maintenance work on his taxi’s engine and body so that he could continue to offer comfortable transportation service to his customers.
