This Kiva borrower is a 38-year-old married man. He is from Lebanon. He lives with his wife and three children. He has been working as an experienced taxi driver since 2001. He offers his private transportation services to students and employees. He obtained his first Kiva loan, and he was an excellent client with payments on the dot. He represents the only financial support to his family.
Today, he is requesting to borrow a bigger amount of $2000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to change his car’s engine and complete the needed amends so he can grant his clients an enhanced and more comfortable service.
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.
