Fadel is a 40-year-old Lebanese married man living with his wife and four children, two of whom are working and the others are still studying. Fadel strives to work really hard in order to offer a respectable life for his family.
He has been working as a truck mechanic since 1990 and has his own garage. He’s well known for his good work and good reputation as well. Today, he has the intention to borrow a loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase the needed mechanical supplies for his garage in order to carry on his work in a proper way and nonstop without facing problems. In the future, he plans to take more Kiva loans and improve his garage.
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.
