This Kiva borrower is a 39-year-old married man from Lebanon. He lives with his wife and four school-aged children. He started working in the car mechanic field 20 years ago. He represents the only income provider for the family and hopes to increase his family’s income. He has obtained 3 Kiva loans and he has been an excellent client.
He repairs different types of cars. Due to his long experience in this field, he has been able to build a good business reputation. Today, he is requesting to borrow $1200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to improve his business by completing his set-up with the needed tools and machinery.
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.
