Kifork is a 49-year-old married man living with his wife and two working children. He is from Lebanon. After his marriage, he became very responsible towards his family and had to work unceasingly so as to support them well financially. In 1992, he opened his own shop where he sells car spare parts. His supplies are used in different types of cars.
Today, he is requesting a loan from Kiva partner Vitas s.a.l to purchase additional spare parts in order to satisfy his customers' demand and provide them with top-quality services. Kifork is very optimistic, ambitious, and always seeks the best; and this is the reason why he is making a great effort in his professional career to progress and improve his financial situation.
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.
