Anis is a 53-year-old Lebanese single man. He has been working as a car mechanic since 1989. His job is specialized in car electrical repairs. With his loan requested from Kiva partner Vitas s.a.l, he will purchase mechanical tools and supplies with which he intends to improve his repair services and, therefore, meet his customer’s needs. He is very optimistic and confident that the loan will allow him to gain more customers and make more money. Anis took advantage of previous Kiva loans and we note that he was a very good client with payments on time.
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.
