Adnan is a 50-year-old Lebanese married man living with his wife and two children who are still studying. He’s considered as the main source of income for his family and is looking to offer them a fair way of living. He has been working as a van driver since 2005. He works independently, on a free-lance basis. Today, he wants to borrow a loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to buy a new van for his business. This Kiva loan will allow him develop his work and therefore gain added customers. In the future, he plans to organize touristic trips all over the country.
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.
