Ali is a 43-year old married man with two children, living in his village Al Kfour in Nabatieh in southern Lebanon. Ali has been a taxi driver for 15 years. Today he wants to borrow $500 to change his taxi tires. In addition he plans to fix his taxi's engine.
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.
