Alec is a 35-year-old single man living with his parents. He has owned a car repair shop since 1991. He repairs all types of car and is well known in his region and its surroundings. Alec is pleased with his decision to take out his first Kiva loan from Ameen. He has been very reliable with his repayments and has actually repaid his loan in full several months early.
Today, Alec is requesting a loan of $1,000 to purchase a scanner machine in order to integrate this technology into his work, developing it to meet the requirements of the market and of his customers.
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.
