Omar is a 37-year-old married man living with his wife and two children. He is from Lebanon. In 1995, he opened his own car repair shop. His job consists of painting the cars and refreshing the old paint. With his requested loan of $1200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l, he will be able to purchase additional painting tools and supplies to present good quality services to the clients. In the future, he hopes to further expand his business and continue his work properly to earn a good income for the family.
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.
