This Kiva borrower is a 42-year-old married man living with his wife and four kids. He is from Lebanon. He has been working as a home painter for the past 24 years. He works on a freelance basis, taking home projects. His income is vital to support his family and be able to satisfy the heavy expenses of life. He has obtained his first Kiva loan and was a good client with payments on time.

Today, he is requesting to borrow $2000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase new painting tools instead of his used ones to present good quality service to the clients. In the future, he hopes to further expand his business and continue his work properly to earn income for his family.
