This Kiva borrower is a 24-year-old single man from Lebanon. He is living with one parent and five siblings. He started his career at a very young age working in an air-conditioning company. In parallel, and during his free time, this man works on a freelance basis setting up air conditioners and repairing the ruined ones. Today, he is requesting to borrow $1,000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase a new engine for his car so that he can travel around diverse areas and villages in order to serve all customers wherever they are located.
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.
