This Kiva borrower is a 46-year-old married man and the father of three children who are still attending school. He has been working as a mechanic for 18 years, and in 2000 he established his own car repair shop. He fixes specific types of vehicles. He used to work in the Lebanese army, but because of health problems he had to retire. This man represents the only income source of the family.
He has taken out three Kiva loans and has been a trusty client, repaying on time. Today he is requesting to borrow $ 2000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to buy new mechanicA. materials and supplies in order to develop his workshop and attract more customers. He hopes that the coming years will continue to bring positive growth and increased income.
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.
