This Kiva borrower is a 34-year old single man from Lebanon. He lives with his parents and he is the main income provider for his family with his business.
For the past few years, he has made his living as a professional taxi driver. He operates transportation services for customers in his village as well as neighboring towns. With his Kiva loan requested of US $1200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l., he will be able to perform maintenance work on his vehicle. He reports that these improvements will enable him to provide his service to more passengers.
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.
