Hasib is a Lebanese married man; he’s 47 years old. He’s married to Khadija, the mother of his three school-aged children. Together, Hasib and his wife were capable of covering their heavy expenses to live a respectable life.
Hasib started his business at an early age, where he gained the needed experience to open his own garage. He’s a car black smith specialist (auto body repair), and has loyal customers who visit him from all over the neighboring areas.
Today, he’s asking for a loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to buy the needed tools for his business such as metal and many other items, so he can respond rapidly to his clients’ problems.
He believes that acting properly is really essential to attract additional customers. In the future, he plans to open other branches and hire people 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.
