Maroun is a 34-year-old Lebanese man. He’s married to a sweet lady who is the mother of his only child. Maroun is the one covering the family expenses, not to forget the support of his wife who works at an engineering office. Maroun had many years of experience as a car mechanic when he decided to open his own garage in 2005. As he wishes to better develop his work, he is asking today for a loan from Kiva partner Vitas s.a.l to purchase added mechanic tools. This step will facilitate his business, allowing him to receive more clients, who are going to be served rapidly. Maroun just started his career; that’s why another Kiva loan will be a good way for him to expand his business and increase his earnings.
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.
