This Kiva borrower is a 28-year-old married man and father of two young children. He lives in Lebanon. He has over ten years of experience working with car spare parts. He has owned his own business since 2003. With his requested loan of US$ 1200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l., he will invest in increasing his inventory and therefore increase his sales.
In the future, he is planning to open a bigger store to trade and sell spare parts and deliver his business to other areas. He told us that he would like to one day open a commercial center.
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.
