Hadi is a twenty-year-old Lebanese single man living with his parents and three siblings, one of whom is working. With his father’s help, Hadi was able to offer his family a good way of living. He started to work as a painter in 2007 on a free-lance basis and still does this.

Today, he’s requesting a youth loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase new paintings tools to be able to start his new project. This Kiva loan will allow him take on bigger projects and increase his profits by 15%. In the future, he plans to open his own painting shop.
