Georges is a 59-year-old widowed man from Lebanon living with his two children. In 1987, he opened a car repair shop. His job consists in painting and repainting the cars. He has one full-time employee helping him with the work.
Today, he is requesting to borrow $1000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase new improved tools and supplies. In the future, he plans to enlarge his shop and start a car spare parts sales business.
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.
