Today, he is requesting to borrow $1100 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to perform maintenance work on his taxi’s engine and body after being in an accident. He wants to renovate it to present a comfortable transportation service to his customers. In the coming year, he expects that his business will continue to grow and he wishes that we wile be able one day to purchase an additionA. van to increase his business operation.
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.
