Ibrahim is a 49-year-old Lebanese married man, living with his wife and only child. He has been working as a taxi driver since 1986. He works independently transporting customers to their desired location. In addition, he provides private transportation to nearby countries.
With his loan, requested from Kiva partner Vitas s.a.l, he will perform the needed maintenance on his car to be able to carry on with his business safe and sound. In the future, he plans to replace his car with a new one and expand his work geographically.
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.
