Joseph is a 31-year-old married man and father of one young child.
In 2002, Joseph opened a car wash shop in his town after seeing a need for such services in the region. He is the only provider in his family with his business and that's the reason why he works to hard to satisfy its needs.
Joseph services his town, and he has found an opportunity to expand his business into other areas. In order to fulfill his project and to take in more cars for cleaning, he needs to buy a new air compressor. He’s asking for a loan of $700 to realize this purpose.
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.
