Mohamad is a 30-year-old single man from Lebanon living alone. He has been working as a taxi driver since 2009. He has been involved in this type of business for the past 10 years. His main service route is between his town and the surrounding areas. He also serves customers upon their requests. He has obtained his first Kiva loan and has been a very good client paying on time. Today, he is requesting to borrow $1,200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to perform the needed maintenance on his taxi. After doing those repairs, he will be able to expand his business operation into other areas without facing any mechanicA. problems.
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.
