This Kiva borrower is a 28-year-old Lebanese single man. He lives alone. He has owned a car repair shop since 2004 and has 10 years of experience working in the same occupation. He is a hard worker and an ambitious man. He has lots of loyal customers passing by his shop because of his first-rate services.
Today, he is requesting to borrow $1200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase additional mechanical equipment that will facilitate his business operation and increase his productivity. In the future, he is planning to further develop his work efficiency.
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.
