This Kiva borrower is a 42-year-old married man living with his wife and five young children. He has been working in the construction field for the past 24 years. His work is specialized in cleaning brick floors. In parallel, he has worked as a taxi driver since 1986. His work consists in renting a car and transporting customers to their desired location.
With his requested loan of $1200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l, he will purchase a car to use rather than renting one in order to proceed with his business operation properly. He notes that with the car ownership he will be able to save money and save more time in serving customers.
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.
