This Kiva borrower is a 57-year-old married man from Lebanon. He lives with his wife and two school-age children, and is the only income provider for the family. He's been working as a taxi driver / student driver since 2006. In addition, he works as a food chef on occasion. In Lebanon, it is common at all levels of society for people to have multiple businesses. It is often not enough to have an office salary or a small shop to cover the increasing costs of food, housing and other family expenses.

Today, he is requesting a loan of $1200 from Kiva's partner, Ameen s.a.l., to repaint his van and perform the necessary maintenance so he can transport students and customers in a secure vehicle.
