Adel is a 30-year-old single man from Lebanon living with his parents. He has been working at the Internal Security Forces since 2004. In parallel, since 2005, he has been working in computer repair in order to get a higher income and better support his family. With the requested loan of $1,200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l, he will be able to purchase a car which will help him with transportation to facilitate his work especially since he serves customers located in different places and areas. In the future, Adel hopes to open his own computer shop.
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.
