Nabil is a brave man. He’s 56 year old and married to an adorable and lovely woman. They have two children who work and live in their own house that is located in a one of the wonderful Lebanese villages. Nabil is the main provider of income for his family. He has huge responsibilities to care for, which is why he asks sometimes for his children’s support. In 2006, Nabil started to work on his own taxi. His job consists of transporting people to and from their places upon request.
And because Nabil is facing some problems with his car, he has requested to borrow a loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to perform the needed maintenance on it in addition of paying the mechanic fees. This is how Nabil works to better develop his business. He really wishes to expand his work and buy a van to transport a wider range of clients.
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.
