Zein is a 37-year-old married man with three children living in Deir Kifa, in southern Lebanon. A car mechanic, he opened his own workshop in 1988. Zein started renovating his garage and he is asking for a loan of $1,200 to buy an automatic car lift for faster and better customer service.
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.
