Abdallah is a brave man. He’s 39 years old and married to an adorable and lovely woman. They have two school-aged children and are ready to sacrifice their lives for them.
Abdallah provides the main source of income for his family. He has huge responsibilities to manage, especially paying his children’s educational fees.
In 2000, Abdallah started to work with his own van. His job consists of transporting students to and from places upon request. And because Abdallah is facing some problems with his van, he has requested a loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to perform the necessary maintenance on it.
This is how he strives to develop his business better. He really wants to expand his work and buy a bigger van to transport a wider range of clients.
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.
