This Kiva borrower is a 34-year-old married man from Lebanon. He lives with his wife and one school-age child. He has been working in selling car spare parts for the last 10 years. And in 2009, he opened his own shop and began his car trade operation. He is thankful for his business income because it allows him to provide good life conditions to his family.
Today, he is requesting to borrow $1,200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to increase his shop’s inventory in order to increase his sales. He hopes that the loan will help him increase his profits by 15%. He is confident that his work will continue to be successful in the 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.
