Abbas is a 32-year-old Lebanese man living with his wife and two children. He is the main income provider in the family.

He started to work as a car mechanic and painter six years ago and has his own garage. He is an expert in this field, with twelve years of experience. He has a fair number of customers asking for his services. Today, he needs to borrow a loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase new mechanical and painting tools for his garage. This will help him continue his work in a proper way and respond to his customers’ demands quickly. In the future, he plans to improve his garage and expand his business.
