Nabil is a 60-year-old married man and father of 2 children. He has owned a car painting shop for the past 40 years. Over the years, thanks to his business income, Nabil has been able to meet his family needs and raise his children to become mature and independent.
Today, Nabil is asking for a loan of $1,000 to purchase a new air compressor needed for his business. This would replace his long used and inefficient one.

Vitas appreciates Kiva lenders' understanding of these challenges and encourages them to continue their support for Lebanon's borrowers.
