Nazih is a 36-year-old Lebanese man. He’s married, living with his wife and two children who are attending school. He and his wife are trying their best to bring added income to the family and enhance their way of living.
He has been working as a car blacksmith and painter for a few years. He has many years of experience in this domain and has gained a fair number of customers asking for his services.
He wants to enlarge his business and grow his work as well, so he decided to take a loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase the needed painting tools and supplies in addition to many other items needed to carry on his work in a proper way.
Nazih wishes to live a proper life with his family, which is the reason he needs to amplify his income in order to be able to make savings for the future.
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.
