This Kiva borrower is a 30-year-old single man living with his parents and two siblings. He is from Lebanon. He is an experienced industrial mechanic. He has been involved in this type of business for the past seven years. He works on a freelance basis. His work consists in repairing industrial machines.
Today, he is requesting to borrow $1200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to rent a small place where he will be able to conduct his business operation properly. In the future, he is planning to own a big garage.
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.
