Kassem is a 34-year-old Lebanese married man living with his three school-aged children. He’s the family's main source of support and they all depend on him, especially for paying their educational fees in addition to all other family expenses.

Kassem has been working in construction, specializing in completing wall foliage work, for the past nine years. He has been waiting for the perfect timing to grow in this field as much as possible. In parallel, he works as a constructor in a local company. Kassem is now looking to borrow $1,200 from Kiva's partner, Ameen s.a.l, to purchase new construction supplies such as foliage paper, scaffolding and many other items. In the future, he plans to take on bigger projects outside the country.
