Kaysar is a Lebanese, married man. He’s 40 years old, and has two children. He’s really attached to his wife and children. Cooperating together, Kaysar and his wife were capable to cover their heavy expenses, in order to live a respectable life. He started his business as a car mechanic many years ago. He had to work really hard to prove that he’s a capable support for his family. He has gained a fair number of customers asking for his services. As for his wife, she works in a local company.
Today, he’s asking for a loan from Kiva's partner, Vitas s.a.l. He will use the loan to purchase the needed quantity of car lubricants in order to respond rapidly to his clients’ problems. He believes that acting promptly is really essential to attract more and added customers. He seeks to develop his work in the near future, and 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.
