Jaafar is a 31-year-old married man living with his wife and two children. He is from Lebanon. Since his marriage, Jaafar became the one responsible for his family and he had to work non-stop to support them properly financially. In 2008, he opened his own shop where he sells car accessories. His supplies are used in different types of cars. Today, he is requesting a loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase additional car accessories in order to satisfy his customers' demands and provide them with top-quality services. Jaafar is very optimistic, ambitious, and always seeks the best; and this is the reason why he is doing a great effort in his professional career to progress and improve his finances.
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.
