Jaafar has owned a car repair shop since 2002. He has been involved in this field for the past 12 years. He's 23 years old, single, and living with his 3 brothers and mother. He cooperates with his brothers in the household since the death of their father. Today, Jaafar is requesting to borrow $1,000 to buy the tools needed for his business in order to repair all types of cars.
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.
