This is Anis, a 52-year-old Lebanese, single man. He lives with his only parent. Anis started to work on his own while looking forward to managing the family’s household expenses. Anis specializes in electricity in cars. He became an expert in his domain after gaining very good experience. He has been involved in this profession for twenty-four years.
Today, he’s asking to borrow a loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase new electrical tools and supplies with the needed quantity of spare car parts. His big interest toward his profession will develop the way he works. This is also the reason why he would like to expand his business: to earn superior income and better support his family.
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.
