Joseph has owned a car repair shop since 1990. His job consists of repairing vehicles from the outside. He is a 50-year-old married man from Lebanon. He is living with his wife and four children. Because of his older age, Joseph had to hire a full-time employee to help him accomplish the work tasks. Today, he is requesting to borrow $2000 from Kiva's partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase new mechanical equipment. He is certain that the loan will help him achieve remarkable growth in his business, which will return higher profits to him.
