This Kiva borrower is an 18-year-old single man from Lebanon. He lives with his parents and five siblings. This young man has started working in car mechanics in 2002. And after getting the needed experience, he decided to open his own car repair shop. He repairs all type of cars. This talented man was able to gain a good number of clients.
Today, he is requesting to borrow $1200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase mechanic's tools. He wants to complete all tools needed to reinforce his business and be in demand with his clients. In the future, he hopes to expand his business further and sell car spare parts.
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.
