Deeb is a 48-year-old, married father of two. For 30 years, he has been working as a car mechanic. He is well-known in his region, with a good reputation and a special talent in his domain. Deeb's wife doesn't work and his two children are enrolled in a public school because he can't afford to register them in a private school, due to his low-income business.

Deeb is applying for his second loan cycle from Kiva's partner, Al Majmoua Lebanese Association for Development, in order to increase his business merchandise with new and used spare parts, that will increase his income and develop his business.

He hopes to move to a wider garage in the future and to start selling spare parts, too.
