Ata is a 55-year-old Lebanese man. He lives with his wife and six children. Five of the children are working while the other one is still attending school.

He’s accurate and honest, making his customers loyal to him. Today, he’s looking to borrow $1300 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to perform necessary maintenance on his car in addition to painting and bodywork.
