This Kiva borrower is a 23-year-old single man from Lebanon. He lives with his parents and three siblings. He has been working as a freelance car trader and broker for 6 years. He helps his father to support the family. He obtained his first Kiva loan and he was an excellent client with on-time payments.
Today, he is requesting to borrow $1000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to perform the needed maintenance on the cars before selling them so that he can guarantee his clients that they will purchase a safe car with top quality, inside and outside. In the future, he is hoping to expand his business and open his own car showroom.
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.
