Ghassan is a 53-year-old married man living with his wife and two children. He is from Lebanon. He has been working as a car mechanic for the past 21 years. Five years ago, he opened his own car repair shop and started to provide his customers with top quality repair services. And today, Ghassan is asking to borrow 800 USD from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase car oils in large quantities. In the future, he plans to start selling spare car parts from his shop.
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.
