This Kiva borrower is a 29-year-old married man from Lebanon. He is living with his wife and three young children who are still attending school. He has been working in the mechanics field since 2000. His work consists of maintaining all types of cars. He is thankful for his business income. It helps him satisfy his family's needs. Today, he is requesting to borrow $2,000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to buy more materials needed for his work. In the future, he is planning to enlarge his business and open a new shop where he will sell car spare parts. This will be his second Kiva loan.
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.
