Mahmoud is a 34-year-old Lebanese married man, living with his wife. He’s the main source of income for his family and is looking to have children.
Mahmoud has owned a truck for the past ten years. His job consists of transporting products from town to town upon customers’ requests. Today, he’s asking for a loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to perform the needed maintenance on his truck in addition to painting it. This will definitely facilitate his transportation and allow him to collect higher income. In the future, he plans to buy another truck and hire someone to work with him.
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.
