This Kiva borrower is an 18-year-old single man from Lebanon. He lives with his two old parents and six siblings. He started his career at a very young age working as a mechanic. In 2010, he opened his own garage. His work is specialized in car electricA. repairs. Since his business establishment, this young man was able to achieve a remarkable growth and became well known in his town as well as in its neighboring villages. He provides the household, medicA. and all other family expenses. Today, he is requesting to borrow $1,000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase new electric tools and supplies instead of the used ones. He’s sure that with these purchases, he will be able to deliver his services faster.
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.
