Abdallah is a 49-year-old married man with 5 children, living in Maarakeh in southern Lebanon. He has owned a mini-van taxi since 2001, and he is offering transportation services to neighboring villages in the Tyr area. Abdallah wants to borrow US$ 1,200 in order to perform maintenance on his van and change the tires for better safety.
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.
