Salah is a 34-year-old Lebanese man. He’s married, living with his wife and three children. He was working really hard to be able to cover his heavy expenses and satisfy his family's needs. He has been working in car trading for the past four years, and he is really satisfied with what he has attained so far. In parallel, he has been working at a local company since 2006. Today, he’s looking to take out a loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase a new car for his business. In that way, he will be able to continue his job properly and therefore increase his sales. In the future, he plans to open his own car showroom.
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.
