Samir is a 47-year-old Lebanese married man, living with his wife and two children. He has owned a car spare parts shop since 1990 and has twenty-two years of experience working in the same occupation. He works very hard in collaboration with his wife to live a proper life.
Today, he is requesting to borrow a loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase a big quantity of car spare parts at good prices. He notes that these purchases will allow him to respond rapidly to his clients' demands. In the future, he plans to expand his business into other areas. He is optimistic about his business development and hopes that the coming years will bring positive growth.
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.
