This Kiva borrower is a 36-year-old married man from Lebanon. He lives with his wife and three young children. He has owned a car repair shop for 20 years. He is the only income source of the family. He has obtained three Kiva loans and he has been a very good client with punctual payments.
Today, he is requesting to borrow $1,200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase additional equipment and tools to provide better services to his customers.
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.
