Nidal is a 30-year-old Lebanese man. He lives with his wife and only child, who is still attending school. He’s the one taking care of his family, so he is doing his best to enhance their way of living and cover the heavy costs of life. Nidal began his own business as a furniture painter in 2006, and he has twelve years of work experience in this field. He has gained different clients from different areas because of his good and well-organized work. Today, he’s seeking to borrow a youth loan of $2100 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase new painting tools and brushes for his business. The supplies will enable him to take on more projects, thus earning a superior income. In the future, he plans to open his own furniture gallery.
