Mohammad is a 62-year-old Lebanese married man. He’s living with his wife and two school-aged children. He’s doing his best to be able to offer them a respectable life.
Mohammad opened his own car oil and batteries shop in 2009 and has a variety of products. Today, he is looking for a loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase the needed quantity of oil and batteries for his business. He notes that this will boost his sales and allow him to earn superior income. In the future, he plans to better develop his business and increase his revenues.
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.
