This Kiva borrower is a 47-year-old married man from Lebanon. He lives with his wife and three children.

In addition, he offers transportation services for customers upon their request.

He cooperates with his wife who works as a teacher in a local school to be able to afford the high cost of living. Today, he is requesting to borrow $2000 US from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to perform much needed maintenance on his van, including changing the tires and repairing the engine.
