This Kiva borrower is a 32-year-old Lebanese single man living with one parent and two siblings. He has 10 years of experience working as a car mechanic. In 2005, he opened his own car repair shop. He states that his business income is barely sufficient to satisfy his needs. So from time to time, he also works in a locA. company in order to earn extra money and be able to meet his financiA. obligations. Today, he is requesting to borrow $1,200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase mechanicA. tools and supplies. He is eager to reinforce his business operation so that he can focus on one job and contribute with all his efforts with the intention of making his car repair shop a stable enough source of income.
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.
