Samer is a 33-year-old Lebanese married man. He lives with his wife and two school-aged children. He believes that combining forces with his wife will be great to develop their way of living. He has been working as a taxi driver for nine years. He’s accurate and honest and that makes his customers loyal to him.
Today, he’s looking to borrow $1100 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to pay his car mechanic's fees. This will help him carry on his work in a proper way and target a wider range of people. In the future, he plans to buy a minivan to transport more people.
Due to political and social challenges in Lebanon, personally identifiable attributes of this entrepreneur 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.
