This Kiva borrower is a 36-year-old single man living with his parents and one sibling. He is from Lebanon. He has been working as a mechanic for 18 years. He works on a freelance basis depending on customer's demands. He is a skilled mechanic, and he has a good number of clients asking for his high quality services. He helps his father with the household expenses. This will be his third Kiva loan.
Today, he is requesting a loan of $1200 from Kiva's partner, Ameen s.a.l., to purchase mechanical machinery which will help him make his work more professional. He has lots of plans in his mind and hopes to own a car repair shop in the near future.
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.
