Bilal is 25 years old and lives in Beirut, the capital of Lebanon. Since 2003, he has owed a barber shop. He is successful in his work because he knows how to treat his customers and is aware of new haircuts. His customers are his friends and neighbors. When he first started his business, he had some financial difficulties in purchasing all the necessary tools. He decided to set up his barber shop because he wanted to have independent work.

Bilal is requesting a loan from Kiva partner, Al Majmoua, in order to purchase tools for his work and change the décor of his shop. This is the first time that he has requested a loan. In the future, he plans on improving his business.
