Hasan is a Lebanese married man. He’s 48 years old and has three children. He’s really attached to his family. Cooperating together, Hasan and his wife were capable of covering their heavy expenses in order to live a respectable life. He started his business as car mechanic. He’s specialized in car electricity.
He had to work really hard to prove that he can provide the necessary support for his family, and clearly, he has gained a large number of customers who seek his services. Today, he’s asking for a loan from Kiva partner Vitas s.a.l to pay fees for his children's studies. One of his greatest dreams is to see them achieving higher positions. Hasan seeks to develop his work in the near future so he can better support his family.
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.
