This Kiva borrower is a 20-year-old single man from Lebanon. He lives with his parents and 5 siblings. Seven years ago, he stopped his education and started working in car mechanics. And since 2007, he is a proud new car repair shop owner in his town. He is thankful for his business income because he is able to help his father in the household.
Today, he is asking for a loan of US$ 1500 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase a specialized scanner to examine the cars technologically. He is certain that with the help of the loan, he will be able to purchase the machine and develop his business. In the future, he is planning to purchase more technicA. equipment to expand his business level.
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.
