Haidar is a 38-year-old man who lives in Bint Jbeil, southern Lebanon, with his wife and their child. Haidar has been working as a home painter since 1998. He paints and decorates houses, as well as doing paintings. When he first started his business, he didn’t face difficulties except making himself known by the public.

Haidar decided on doing his business because he likes painting and decorating, and is good at it. He is special in his work because he does it well and is aware of new painting and decoration fashions; he does his best to have the newest tools in order to improve his performance. He requested a loan from Al Majmoua in order to purchase paint and painting tools for his work.

This is the first time that Haidar has requested a loan. His clients are people from his region. In the future, he plans on improving his business. (To have an idea of his work, you can simply look at the frame behind him; he is the one who realized it.)
