This Kiva borrower is a 39-year-old married man from Lebanon. He lives with his wife and five school-age children. He started his career by selling car spare parts from his house 20 years ago. He works hard day after day to provide a good income for his family. He has obtained three Kiva loans and he was an excellent client with on time payments.
Today, he is requesting to borrow $1,500 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to improve his business so he can increase his sales and therefore his profitability.
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.
