This Kiva borrower is a 20-year-old single Lebanese man. He is living with his parents and two siblings. Despite his young age, he has been working as a mechanic since 2009. His work consists of performing maintenance on all types of cars.
Today, he is requesting a loan of $1000 US from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase a car in order to be able to satisfy his customer's demands by serving them whenever their cars are damaged. He is optimistic about his business development and hopes that the coming years will continue to bring him positive growth.
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.
