Khoder is a 28-year-old Lebanese single man. He lives with his parents and six working siblings. His siblings are the main income providers in the family, though Khoder is always ready to help whenever they need it. He started to work as a painter in 2008, and has built a good reputation with a fair number of customers asking for his services. He also works in home decoration.

Today, he seeks to borrow a youth loan from Kiva Partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase new painting tools in order to keep being up-to-date and enhance his business. In that way, he will be capable of attracting added customers, and therefore earn higher revenues. In the future, he plans to open his own painting shop.
